Posing a challenged to All India Congress Committee President Rahul Gandhi on his proposed visit to Pendra, the Janta Congress Chhattisgarh (Jogi) is all set to hold a grand Kissan Adivasi Sammelan on the same day the AICC President will be visiting Pendra.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, JCC (J) Vice President Dharamjit Singh, who is also the Convener for the Kissan Adivasi Sammelan, said the Janta Congress neither has charismatic leaders nor it has money powers, despite which it will show how much love and affection it receives from the general public.

The AICC is likely to launch the election campaign for Congress in Chhattisgarh from Pendra, a stronghold of Ajit Jogi, either on May 17 or May 18, where he will be addressing a Tribal congregation. The Congress is launching its campaign from Pendra with an objective to bring down the influence of Ajit Jogi in areas like Marwahi, Pendra and Kota. The AICC President is all like to discuss issues pertaining to Forest Rights’ Certificates.

Commenting on the proposed Pendra visit of AICC President Rahul Gandhi, Dharamjit Singh said it seems the All India Congress Committee has only one target in Chhattisgarh, i.e., somehow to tackle former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi. Posing a challenge to All India Congress Committee to make the Congress congregation successful, Singh said the Congress efforts in this direction will be unsuccessful. He said the Janta Congress has already booked the venue and have sought regular permission for the same. He said Ajit Jogi is targeting to stop the winning spree of Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh and Bharatiya Janata Party.

This is the reason why Jogi is contesting against the Chief Minister from Rajnandgaon, the Congress in order to favour the BJP government is trying to put a check on Jogi by concentrating in Pendra, a Ajit Jogi stronghold. He said the Janta Congress programme however depends on the visit of the AICC President. If he doesn’t come to Pendra, then the proposed programme of Kissan Adivasi Sammelan will not be conducted. The Janta Congress, which has already in election campaign and had conducted mega programmes in Rajnandgaon and Raipur. He said the Janta Congress had launched the party from Thatapur in Kawardha district also. The party had expected that the AICC President will commence election campaign either from Rajnandgaon, Durg, Raipur, Raigarh, Jashpur, etc but he is launching from Pendra, then the Congress will get the first hand experience of the power of Ajit Jogi’s popularity.
