PANJIM: Former Union Minister and AICC senior election observer for Goa, P Chidambaram will arrive in Goa on September 18, to interact with various Congress committees and discuss poll strategies.

This will be Chidambaram’s third visit to Goa within a month. 

During the last visit, he had toured some Assembly constituencies and galvanised party workers ahead of the ensuing Assembly elections.

Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Girish Chodankar said that Chidambaram’s programme is yet to be finalised. All India Congress Committee secretary in-charge of Goa desk Dinesh Gundu Rao and district observers will also visit Goa and oversee the party’s preparedness. 

Chodankar said that his task is to strengthen the organisation by reconstituting the Block Congress Committees and ensure that all work unitedly for the victory of Congress candidates in the next elections.

The Congress which had emerged as the single largest party in 2017 elections and outwitted by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) claiming that it was a fractured mandate is now trying to wrest power in the State. 

The Goa Assembly elections are scheduled in March next year.
