Stung by its rout in recent assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Odisha, the Congress
has formed six teams to find out the reasons behind its dismal show from the districts so that the party can be revived before the next polls, a senior party leader
said on Sunday.
A meeting of the fact-finding committee constituted by the state Congress
was held here on Saturday and it was decided that the six teams will submit their reports by the end of this month, Narasingha Mishra said.
Mishra, an MLA who was the leader
of opposition in the previous assembly, said each of the six teams has been given the charge of five districts for thorough review.
The team members will visit every constituency and meet party candidates and workers at all levels, people and intellectuals to find out the reasons behind the defeat of the party, he said.
After the teams submit their reports, the 20-member fact-finding committee headed by him will finalise its report and corrective steps will be taken for revival of the party in the state, Mishra said.
