Elections 2019: Congress screening committee to visit Odisha again

Bhubaneswar: The Screening Committee constituted by All India Congress Committee to oversee candidate selection process in Odisha will once again visit the State towards the end of the month to select candidates for the remaining 10 Lok Sabha constituencies and the Assembly seats under it.

All India Congress Committee screening committee member, Naushad Solanki today said that just like the previous visit, the screening committee will continue the candidate selection process in consultations with leaders and workers at the grassroots.

We are sure that our screening of poll candidates will be completed soon so that we can submit the recommended names for finalization by the party high command.

Solanki further added that leaders who are completely dedicated to the party, ideologically uncompromising, public-oriented and most of all with high probability of winning will be front runners for candidature.

It may be noted that a team of the Screening Committee of the party led by chairman VD Satheesan recently held discussions with various stakeholders at the district and zonal levels for a consensus over selection of candidates.
