Congress to survey candidates for ULB

The Congress will not demand biodata of party candidates for the ensuing Urban Local Bodies (ULB) polls. Instead, the candidate will be named after going through a survey.

This decision was taken at a meeting of the party here on Thursday.

AICC Chhattisgarh in-charge P.L. Punia chaired the meeting where Chief Minister Bhupesh and PCC chief Mohan Markam were present along with a dozen of cabinet Ministers.

The meeting called for formulating a strategy for the polls.

It was decided at the meeting to constitute ward, booth, election manifesto and publicity committees by November 30.
