The headquarters of the Congress party in Madhya Pradesh has got a facelift as part of a strategy to win the coming Assembly polls in the state. Resorting to the science of architecture or ‘Vastu Shastra’ as it is known the party has changed the structural layout of the ground floor section of the building that houses the state headquarters.
‘Indira Bhawan’ which is located in the Shivajinagar part of the city is a four storey building that forms the Congress party’s state headquarters. Experts in ‘Vastu Shastra’ recommended the shifting of toilets around K K Mishra, the party chief spokesman’s office on the ground floor and following their advice three of them were removed. The party members feel relieved and happy that they were successful in eliminating the ‘vastu’ defects and are hopeful that with the removal of bad omens their fate will improve. They feel that the move will usher in good luck for the party and enable them to win the Assembly elections which are likely to be held by the year end.
The leaders of the party at the center are totally charged and busy engaged in activities to develop an effective election strategy for the state. The Congress is hell-bent on wresting power from the BJP in the state and wins the elections. Fourteen years is a long wait and they feel that the year 2018 will be the year of the Congress in the state.
Regarding the friction and backbiting within the state party unit, Mishra said that the matter was already sorted out. However, they would not be unraveling the name of the candidate who would fill in the Chief Minister’s shoes as the backbiting was yet to be totally eliminated. He said that disclosure of the name could possibly lead to infighting between other groups.
