The Congress has added 2.6 crore new members in its digital membership drive that ended on Friday, with party chief Sonia Gandhi enrolling herself as part of the initiative

Former prime minister Manmohan Singh became a digital member of the party on Thursday while former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi was one of the first leaders to be enrolled as a digital member on the first day of the drive on November 1.

Unlike previous years, the CWC this time decided to implement the digital membership drive in addition to the standard paper membership process for the period 2022-2027, the party said.

“It is a matter of happiness that the digital membership drive has evinced great interest from people of the country, especially younger supporters of the Congress party,” AICC general secretary Organisation, K C Venugopal said in a statement.

He said through the digital membership drive, the Congress party has so far added 2.6 crore members across all booths in all assembly segments.

These are all verified members, enrolled into the party by a designated enroller using a proprietary mobile phone app called Congress Membership App, he said
