Tytler asks state Congressmen to stop frequenting Delhi

Bhubaneswar: Describing himself as an emissary of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, senior party leader Jagdish Tytler today asked partymen in Orissa to refrain from frequently visiting Delhi and instead spend more time in getting closer to the masses.

"I am the emissary of Soniaji and Rahulji in Orissa.

Therefore, partymen in the state need not frequently travel to Delhi to ventilate their problems", Tytler, AICC`s Orissa in-charge, told reporters here.

Tytler, who held marathon brainstorming session with Congress MLAs including leader of opposition Bhupinder Singh, said he himself would be spending more time in Orissa as part of efforts to rejuvenate the party.

The former Union minister said a host of issues including performance of party legislators in the assembly were discussed threadbare during his interaction with them.

Tytler, who is likely to visit the state again after four days, said partymen would step-up attack on the BJD government in Orissa which failed miserably on all fronts.

Apart from rampant corruption, the state witnessed a dismal show by the Naveen Patnaik regime in implementing the Centrally funded schemes including MGNREGA amidst alleged financial irregularities and diversion of the funds.

"Congress will also highlight achievements of the UPA government at the Centre besides exposing the inefficient and corrupt BJD regime".
