  • “Shakti” app to strengthen the party cadres in the state by connecting them across each booth, village, town and district in Karnataka.

Bengaluru: Senior Congress leader and former Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Saturday urged his party cadres in Karnataka to strengthen their presence in every poll booth.

He was in the city to launch the party’s “Shakti” app to strengthen the party cadres in the state by connecting them across each booth, village, town and district in Karnataka. The mobile phone-based project aims to build a direct link between the party’s booth-level workers and its senior leadership.

A party worker can enroll himself/herself on the platform by registering through their voter card number. Addressing party members here, Chidambaram said, “It is a booth-wise election ahead, which is why the party needs our people in every booth. We (Congress) must have enough people with feet on every booth.”

Shakti will enable the booth-level workers of the party to interact with the local leadership on various issues, he added.

“Congress had 2 per cent advantage in the vote share in the election, as we got 38 per cent of the votes, while the BJP got 36 per cent,” Chidambaram observed. Though the party lost in the May 12 Karnataka assembly elections, Congress had higher vote percentage than of the BJP, he claimed.
