"Workers have been asked to name the party leader they think should be appointed as new Delhi Congress chief. They can do so by uttering the name of their choice following a beep in a voice message. The feedback of party workers will be accessed over the next two days and then it will be considered by the high command in making a decision," he said.
Shakti app is a big data app that serves as a digital link between Congress workers and Gandhi. It is being employed by the party for two-way communication and feedback collection on a wide range of issues.
