The Maharashtra Congress unit on Sunday exuded confidence that it would make a strong comeback under the leadership of its newly-elected national president Mallikarjun Kharge. The state unit of Congress said that Kharge's election to the top post of the party is a historic occasion. The Extended Executive Committee of the State Congress Committee congratulated Kharge by passing a unanimous resolution on his election as the party president. All India Congress Committee's state in-charge HK. Patil said the party believes in inclusiveness and gives equal opportunities to all sections of society.
The proposal to congratulate Kharge was moved by the party's state unit chief Nana Patole and party leaders Balasaheb Thorat, Ashok Chavan, and Prithviraj Chavan supported it. "This (Kharge's election as Congress president) is a befitting reply to those who accuse Congress of dynastic politics," Patole said. He said that this yatra is succeeding in uniting the people.
