‘No use calling for revival of Kamaraj rule without doing spade work’
CHENNAI: Congress leaders here have expressed concern over the state of affairs of the party in the State and opined there is no point calling for revival of Kamaraj rule without doing any spade work.
It is unfortunate that the party has become an object of mockery in the eyes of the people. If it remains indifferent to people’s problems, there is every possibility of the party losing its present position, they say. They want the workers to put the party’s interest above themselves.
Addressing a function organised by the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee here on Thursday to honour freedom fighters in commemoration of the Quit India Movement, TNCC president M. Krishnasswamy assured party workers that hereafter, party positions would be given only to those who were actively involved in party work. Workers should rededicate themselves to bring back the glory of the party in the State.
S. Peter Alphonse, MLA, said every worker should ask himself what he had done for the party. The spirit of freedom struggle should be re-enacted by workers.
Former MLA S.G. Vinayagamurthi said there was no point talking about Kamaraj rule without taking any step to rejuvenate the party.Congress Legislature Party leader D. Sudarsanam, deputy leader D. Yesoda and former TNCC president Kumari Ananthan were among those who appealed to the workers to remain united and work for the party.
The TNCC president honoured freedom fighters by offering them shawls.
