‘To ensure party’s victory in forthcoming Assembly polls’

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee on Saturday decided that no voter in the Capital would be left without a voter identity card and the Congress workers at the grassroots level would work towards ensuring the same.

At a meeting of the DPCC executive committee which was attended among others by Delhi Election Minister Mangat Ram Singhal and Member of Parliament Jagdish Tytler, it was decided that to ensure the party’s victory in the forthcoming Delhi Assembly polls top priority be given to ensuring that proper election ID cards are issued to the voters.

Minister’s visit

Mr. Singhal said he would personally visit the election ID card issuing centres and interact with the block presidents to see to it that every voter has an election ID card. The process for issuing election ID cards has begun on June 5.

During the meeting, DPCC president J. P. Agarwal also praised the Delhi Government for taking the burden off the common man’s shoulder by bearing Rs.40 of the Rs.50 hike in the price of domestic cooking gas cylinders in the Capital.

Mr. Agarwal accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of trying to inflame passions on the streets over the issue of prices.
