In the recent Bengal polls, we saw the Trinamool retain power and the BJP emerge as a strong opposition. However, there was one thing that really stood out – the Congress was not able to win any seat. This has happened for the first time in the history of West Bengal. So, what is to be done now? How does the Congress plan to bounce back? That is what we will talk about in this article. We will tell you how the Congress is steadily consolidating an organizational network in Bengal through Rahul Gandhi’s pet project, AIUWC.
Dr Nuzhat Sajdaa is a doctor of acupuncture. She is also the Chairperson of the Women’s Cell of the Human Rights Federation. However, what makes her special is that she is the founder and the chairperson of a civil society organization by the name of Sajdaa NGO. Just a couple of months back, Sajdaa NGO had its 3rd Foundation Day Celebration. It was attended by Swapan Bose, Chairman of All India Unorganized Workers’ Congress (AIUWC) in West Bengal.
In fact, Swapan Bose had also appointed Dr Sajdaa as a secretary in the regional faction of AIUWC. He noticed her passion for helping people when he saw the welfare operations conducted by Sajdaa NGO during the lockdown. They were providing food and money to the underprivileged. Be it distributing blankets and clothes among senior citizens at old-age homes or supplying nourishments to hardworking police officers on duty during Summer, Sajdaa NGO cares for everyone. Since a young age, Dr Sajdaa has been involved in the welfare of the underprivileged community. It is this dedication that reflects her calibre. That is why she was picked by Mr Bose for the responsibility.
Dr Nuzhat Sajdaa is one example of how Swapan Bose is building the organisational fabric of All India Unorganized Workers’ Congress in the state of West Bengal by accumulating a team of strong-minded and talented individuals. There are other such instances too – Aman Srivastava, the youth leader of Howrah; Deepshikha Bhowmik, the firebrand lawyer; Sheikh Jiyad, the cadre mobilizer of East Medinipur, Kartik Pal, the fiery orator of Nadia – the list goes on. All India Organized Workers’ Congress is the brainchild of none other than Rahul Gandhi himself. This branch of the Congress is led by Arbind Singh at the national level and Swapan Bose at the regional level. How the Congress plans to bounce back in Bengal, you ask? Well, by rebuilding a full-fledged organization with new and fresh talent.
