Shivpuri. Senior Congress leader Sriprakash Sharma has been given the command of the Congress in the district again after 14 years. The Congress organization has given this responsibility to Sharma before the Karaira and Pohri assembly by-elections to be held a few days later. Sriprakash Sharma is known for his sharp flamboyance and bold style. In the upcoming assembly by-elections, the Congress will have a big choice to revive the district organization and add workers.
Dainik Bhaskar had already told that before the Congress announcement that only one of the senior Congress leaders would be given the responsibility of the post of District President and in this the name of former District President Shri Prakash Sharma is on top. The name of Shri Prakash Sharma as District President was announced in the list released on Wednesday from the State Congress. It is known that after Jyotiraditya Scindia left the Congress and joined the BJP, Congress District President Baijnath Yadav also left the Congress. However, Yadav has not yet joined the BJP. But it is believed that he will join the BJP soon.
Diggi and KP Singh are considered supporters Sharma: The politics of the district in the Congress organization has revolved around the Scindia and Diggi camps, but after Jyotiraditya Scindia left the Congress, all his supporters went with him. Those who were supporters of Diggi and KP Singh have survived in the Congress. Sriprakash Sharma was not considered a Scindia faction. He was a supporter of Diggi and KP Singh. This was the reason that from April 1996 to October 2006, he was the District Congress President for 10 consecutive years. In student life, when the NSUI organization did not belong to the Congress in 1971, there used to be the Student Congress, then it was its District President. He was a councilor from 1983 to 88. He was the Vice President of the District Congress from 1991-96. Then became District President. Now after 14 years, he has been given the responsibility of the District President again.
Karaira-Pohri vis by-election with the formation of Congress organization. Big challenge: The entire politics of Congress in the district ran from the palace. Scindia used to make appointments or leaders of Congress from councilor to various posts of assembly and organization. As he left the Congress, 70 percent of the workers and leaders went with him. Now it will be the responsibility of Shri Prakash Sharma to restore the Congress organization. Along with this, the responsibility of winning the candidate in the district's Pohri and Karaira assembly by-elections will also be on the shoulders of Sriprakash Sharma. This will prove to be his biggest challenge after becoming the district president.
