NEW DELHI - Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi Sunday asked party chief ministers and ministers to lend an ear to party workers, describing them as the link between the people and the government.
There are ministers sitting here and also chief ministers here. I want to request them that they should give some time to party workers, Gandhi said in his speech at the 83rd Congress plenary here, adding that the workers were the link between people and the government.
Wherever I travel, there is always a complaint among party workers…ministers need time to devote to their official work, but they should also give some time to party workers, said Gandhi.
This point was also reiterated by party president Sonia Gandhi in her address in the morning.
Sonia Gandhi said that many party workers in non-Congress states had complained to her that the party’s own ministers in the central government did not fully appreciate their concerns.
