""We're going for a massive training program from top to bottom. Workers and leaders at all levels will be trained in party ideologies, policies, expectations of a Congress worker, grassroots messaging, election management, failure of present government and countering propaganda."" - KC Venugopal, as per ANI
Venugopal added that the party passed three resolutions during the meet — one on the present political situation, one on inflation, and one on the 'acute agrarian distress and diabolical attack on India's farmers', respectively, news agency ANI reported.
