Chacko’s challenge

set things right in delhi congress

PC Chacko is the new man in charge of the Congress for the forthcoming Delhi Assembly elections. Chacko knows Delhi since he was a Youth Congress leader and sources disclose that Rahul Gandhi has given him a free hand. Chacko, who lost his Lok Sabha seat from Thrissur in Kerala in the general election, has set up a temporary abode in North Avenue. Delhi Congress leaders are jittery as with great difficulty they had got used to the former party in-charge, Shakeel Ahmed. The party is in a mess and the Delhi Pradesh Congress has not even constituted block-level committees. Ticket-seekers are trying to be friendly with anybody who knows Chacko, who is facing a problem as the Delhi Congress is vertically divided in pro-Sheila and anti-Sheila groups. All ticket-seekers belong to one group or the other. Surprisingly, both groups enjoy the patronage of the top leadership. As a result, Chacko is planning to focus on individual candidates. Chacko’s real challenge is to overcome pressure from Delhi’s rich property dealers and builders who are in the queue for tickets.
