Udaipur (Rajasthan): At the ‘Chintan Shivir’ being held here for three days starting Friday (today), the Congress party is expected to finalise the adoption of a “one family, one ticket” formula to fight the charge of practising dynastic politics. The formula was mooted by one of the panels set up in the run-up to the party convention that has been organised keeping in mind the 2024 General Election. However, the party has even before adopting the formula put a rider on it, which appears to benefit the Gandhi family and some other parivaars. Congress general secretary Ajay Maken today said the formula will not kick in if a second member of the family has been doing "exemplary work" for the party for at least five years. Maken is on the coordination panel on 'organisation' that had proposed the 'one family, one ticket' formula. The formula will not apply if "two persons are from the same family and the second member is actively working for the party for five years", Maken said, adding that such family members would be eligible for tickets and can contest elections. The clarification issued today would come as a relief to several leaders, including from the Gandhi family, who would have had to exit the race for party tickets had the formula been implemented in the manner it was initially perceived to be. The ‘one family, one ticket’ formula, as clarified, makes both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi eligible to claim party tickets and contest elections. Further, Rahul’s sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra would also be eligible to contest elections in 2024 as she would have completed six years by then working for the family. It may be recalled that Priyanka was appointed Congress general secretary in 2018. The Congress party’s three-day 'Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir' got underway in Rajasthan's Udaipur earlier today. The party had instituted six committees for the convention and over 400 leaders will be deliberating over the next three days the Congress’s strategy to tackle emerging challenges. The convention has been organised against the backdrop of a series of poll losses and dissent in the party. Meanwhile, several other organisational reforms which the Congress will be deliberating at the convention include setting up of mandal committees between booth and block level in the organisation, 50 percent representation to those below 50 years of age in party committees at all levels, fixing the maximum of five years tenure for party positions with a cooling off period of three years, setting up of a 'public insight department' for creating an in-house survey mechanism and an assessment wing to gauge the performance of office bearers, reported news agency PTI.
