Cong to perform well in PRI poll: Zar

Our Correspondent

Hamirpur, January 12

The District Congress Committee (DCC) has admitted its defeat in the urban local bodies elections in the district.

Rajender Zar, DCC president, admitting poor performance of party-supported candidates, said here today that though the party could not perform well, it would do better in the elections to Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) as the party had a strong base in the rural areas.

He said the Congress was the party of farmers and working class that lived in the rural areas. The party had performed better in other districts. The Congress-supported candidates had won only five seats out of the 34 in the district, while the BJP had won 24 seats and rest were rebels of both parties.

Rajender said the BJP was facing factionalism. The Congress was gaining popularity and it would be reflected in the PRI elections. Infighting among senior BJP leaders would be exposed to the public soon.
