Mumbai, Jan 2 (PTI) As part of preparations for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, a meeting of the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress delegates has been convened on January 9. This will be the first meeting of the PCC delegates in three years. "Discussions on prevailing political situation in the state and the programme to be adopted by the state unit ahead of the 2014 elections will be on agenda," MPCC President Manikrao Thakre said. AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi, AICC in-charge of the state Mohan Prakash, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, former Union Minister Mukul Wasnik, central and state ministers, legislators and MPs from the state will be attending the day-long meeting. He said 75 MPCC representatives who are AICC members will attend the session in Jaipur. Thakre said in view of the acute drinking water scarcity in Marathwada, the party has set up a committee under him comprising district unit chiefs from the region to prepare a report on the ground situation and pursue the demand of additional funds from the Centre. Asked why the committee will look only into Marathwada region, Thakre said the situation of drinking water scarcity was grim there and it required immediate intervention. PTI MR DK ASY BAS
