The post election postmortem of Congress party has revealed several startling facts. The nine member ministers group is dwelling in length about the factors that influenced the defeat of Congress party in the recently concluded by elections and it has come to a conclusion that the publicity failure of several schemes of the state government has certainly shown its impact on the elections and voter percentage.
In 2009 general elections the Congress used to rely on the publicity of positive scheme implementation on a large scale and that has given the scope for securing the needed majority in that polls for the party. But the post election scenario has dampened that spirit and particularly after the sudden demise of YSR the process has come to a grinding halt in the Rosaiah and KKR regimes respectively.
It could be the major lacunae on the part of the Congress party and it could be the prime reason for all the losses in the elections in the subsequent period, the ministers committee felt. The ministers committee headed by Dharmana Prasad Rao is likely to submit its interim report to the government on July 16 with certain proposals before the Presidential elections.
There is a unanimous conclusion that the publicity failure was the prime reason for the election debacle so far and that could be taken into consideration for launching a serious publicity drive in the coming months.
