Congress is set to launch its digital membership pilot project in Raebareli district, which is the parliamentary constituency of the party's interim president Sonia Gandhi.

The party has chosen one more district where the digital membership drive will be carried out - Bulandshahr.

The organization will also launch this pilot project in Chattisgarh and Goa in the coming days.

A meeting of AICC General Secretary Incharges, state presidents, district presidents have been called on November 4 at the party's war room of the capital for the final discussion before launching the digital membership drive.
