Top Congress leaders from across the country Saturday got together to review the party’s drubbing in the Lok Sabha polls, as the Congress Working Committee meeting got underway here. The CWC meeting, chaired by Congress president Rahul Gandhi, is being attended by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Uttar Pradesh (East) in-charge Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and chief ministers of four party-ruled states—Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh—and the Union Territory of Puducherry.
Senior leader and former Union minister P Chidambaram was also present in the meeting alongside his party colleagues including Ak Antony, Ahmed Patel, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Sheila Dikshit, Mallikarjun kharge, Ambika Soni, Anand Sharma and Jyotiraditya Scindia.
The meeting will go into the reasons behind the party's debacle and discus as to why its poll narrative failed to convince the people.
Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar and Odisha Congress president Niranjan Patnaik have announced their resignations from the post.
Murmurs are already appearing within the party over taking responsibility for its poor performance, with some of its leaders already sending in their resignations.
