Tagore directed the state Congress leaders to appoint committees at booth level, division, and Mandal level as soon as possible so as to streamline the functioning of the party, which has been facing a series of electoral setbacks in the state.
Vikramarka assured the party workers that the party leadership would stand by them. Hoping that Congress would win ensuing elections he urged the cadres to keep aside the differences among them and collectively work for the party’s victory.

After coming to power police officers who troubled the party leaders would be punished, he said. Senior leaders V Hanumantha Rao, Renuka Chowdary, P Balram Naik, and others were present.
