Pradyot set to hit long hard road in state

Mrinal Kanti Banik

Tripura Pradesh Congress President Pradyot Kishore Debbarman knows that reviving the Congress in Tripura would be a long haul and is trying to convince the local leaders that the latest improvements in the vote share in General Elections shouldn’t be taken as a measure of the party’s true potential in the state.

He is meeting party's district coordinators of all over the state and learnt to have promised to visit every district to rebuild the organization before forthcoming ADC and Assembly elections scheduled on 2020 and 2023 respectively. Pradyot Kishore Debbarman, Congress's state president, has already interacted with a large number of party workers and grass root level politicians affiliated to the party including prospected Panchayat election candidates from several parts of the state in last few days. As per the party leaders, Pradyot is more interested in working out a road map for the future than analyzing the causes of defeat. He knows that the internal bickering between BJP and IPFT, the partners in the present coalition government could have been game changer for the Congress. "He has made it clear that strong actions would be taken against the internal saboteurs, and the coteries driven by vested interest would be demolished" party leaders believe.

He had attracted some criticism within the party for what some observed described as "being very straight forward with his ideas to revive the party which his colleagues find not so optimistic". But party youth brigade which is very close to him has an opinion that he had got angry with some of the party's office-bearers and leaders who he believed had kept feeding the party higher-ups wrong information. The TPCC president was also get informed about a disconnect between systems developed by his predecessors and the district unit that often caused disharmony between the party workers and the contenders. Among the other loopholes, developed in the party very steadily, of local Congress politicians colluding with other parties, the absence of booth committees, an inability to match the BJP's resources and an inadequate presence on social media.

Pradyot said to have promised to change this culture and create new mechanism that ensured that the party workers had a say, he also promised to meet the workers directly in regular intervals in an attempt to know the grievances of rooted workers.

The party knows, the obvious break-up between IPFT and BJP had created a new opening for the Congress. Most of the district coordinators and block level leaders insisted that people of interior pockets were fed up with the present government, no matter how the BJP had performed in the parliamentary elections. They suggested the Congress would gain heavily if Pradyot was projected as the next Chief Minister.

Clarity on this aspect will come after later after an analysis from the AICC, but growing number of party workers, in Tripura, want the party to shun the mistakes carried out earlier and revive the party under the leadership of Pradyot.
