Why IPCon

Background

  • It was the dream of our beloved Late Mr. Rajeev Gandhi, to professionalize the Party and thereby bring professionalism for the benefit of the nation. This was initialized by him and is now carried on by Mr. Rahul Gandhi, and is carried forward now by the party. 
  • Professional Management was not developed during the time of Independence and while drafting the Constitution. Only bureaucrats and politicians were exposed to the functional areas of governance and development.
  • The emergence of Globalization and Opening up has made our economy a market driven one and professionalism became a driving force in every walk of life and the need for Professional expertise became a unavoidable factor for Development.
  • Though the Nation desires Professionals to take part in the process of Development of the Country, it is seen that professionals, knowingly or unknowingly are  alienated from the mainstream. 

Rationale

  • A large number of Professionals in the country wait silently, to take part in the development of the country, to support and contribute their expertise and experience for this noble cause. 
  • In this background, the Indian National Congress thought seriously of bridging this gap between the Party and Modern Professional fraternity, and hence the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee has now established a new platform to bring in these professionals together and utilize their commitment, skills and expertise resulting in the formation of IPCon.
  • The Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee has established a new platform to bring in these professionals together and utilize their commitment, skills and expertise to provide a Quality Development Structure to the Party and to the Nation. 
  • This organization of professionals support the policies and programs of the Indian National Congress, without taking part directly in Front line politics.
