Congress picks 475 coordinators for Lok Sabha elections 2024

On Sunday, the All India Congress Committee named coordinators for major Lok Sabha constituencies and filled other significant roles, paving the way for the 2024 general elections.

Mallikarjun Kharge, Congress president, has approved the appointments of constituency coordinators, the Assam state election committee, and presidents of the National Students’ Union of India for three state units ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, general secretary K C Venugopal said in a statement.

The 475 coordinators for parliamentary constituencies will oversee and coordinate the party’s electoral efforts across the nation.

“We are working on all 500 constituencies. We have finalised parliament observers. That list will be announced shortly and they will assess each constituency. Once negotiations with INDIA alliance members are finalised, the exact number of seats will also come out, but we are putting our efforts everywhere,” Kharge had said at a press briefing on the upcoming Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra on Saturday.

The development comes before of negotiations amongst the parties of the opposition INDIA alliance over dividing Lok Sabha seats. “It may so happen that today we are thinking that we are getting ‘A’ seat. Suppose our alliance partner doesn’t agree and says take ‘C’ seat. Therefore, we are working on all constituencies,” Kharge had said.

The INDIA grouping has held four meetings, beginning in Patna in June and continuing in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and, most recently, Delhi last month.

“The AICC has approved the request of the Andhra Pradesh Congress to appoint Parliament Coordinators for all Lok Sabha seats in the state. Hope the teamwork makes the dream of our beloved leader YSR come true,” Congress MP Manickam Tagore posted on X (previously Twitter). “Mission 2024 is on!”

This proactive approach intends to increase the Congress party’s ground presence and voter engagement in preparation for the general election.

Kharge has also authorized the immediate creation of Assam’s State Election Committee. The committee, which has 38 members, includes chairman Bhupen Kumar Borah, vice-chairman Debabrata Saikia, and members Rakibul Hussain, Paban Singh Ghatowar, Gaurav Gogoi, and Nandita Das.

The party additionally approved the appointment of three presidents to lead the party’s state units. The new presidents are Vinod Jakhar for Rajasthan, Swarup Kumar Sil for Tripura, and Rishabh Pandey for Uttar Pradesh East.
