Press Trust of India

Posted: Oct 04, 2003 at 1520 hrs IST

The Congress high command on Saturday set-up a high-level committee to inquire into the facts and circumstances leading to the party's debacle at the Lok Sabha by-poll from Solapur in Maharashtra.

The committee consisting of AICC Treasurer Motilal Vohra and senior party leader Balram Jhakhar will be visiting Mumbai on October six and proceed to Solapur the next day to find the cause behind the debacle.

After talking to all concerned and considering all facts and circumstances, the committee will give its report immediately to the party leadership, Vohra said.

In Solapur, vacated by Sushil Shinde after taking over as Maharashtra Chief Minister, Congress' Anandrao Devkate, who is also the Dairy Development Minister in DF government, lost by a margin of 1,22,817 votes to BJP's Pratapsinh Mohite-Patil.

On October 1, Shinde had met party president Sonia Gandhi and apprised her of his views about the electoral reverse suffered by Congress at Solapur while ruling out his resignation.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi constituted the AICC committee a day after the Maharashtra PCC set up a panel headed by former deputy chief minister Ramrao Adik to go into Solapur Lok Sabha bypoll debacle.

The committee, set up by PCC president Ranjeet Deshmukh, has senior state leaders Prataprao Bhosale, N.M. Kamble and Ishaq Jamkhanawala as its members.
