It was the dream of our beloved late Mr. Rajeev Gandhi, to professionalize the party,
and thereby bring professionalism into it for the benefit of the nation. This was
initiated by him and is now carried on by Mr. Rahul Gandhi, and the last general
elections to the Parliament are a standing testimony for the same. Though the nation
desires professionals to take part in the process of the development of the country,
it is seen that professionals, knowingly or unknowingly, are alienated from the mainstream.
When the hour of need comes, the man of the moment comes. The think-tanks of our
country, an able body of professionals have thus arrived and incorporated themselves
into the congress corpus, to strengthen us with their valuable intellectual contributions.
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 (KPCC) has now established a new platform to bring in these professionals
together and utilize their commitment, skills and expertise resulting in the formation
of the IPCon.
