Congress Working Committee (CWC) will meet today to discuss the party’s poll debacle in five states. Congress president Sonia Gandhi will chair the meeting of the party’s highest decision-making body. Congress lost Punjab to the Aam Aadmi Party and could not win any of the other four states – Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, and Manipur.
The meeting comes in the wake of G-23 leaders putting pressure on the party to advance organizational overhaul and internal polls. There is simmering tension within the Congress after the poll debacle, and the G-23 leaders are miffed with the style of functioning of the party leadership. On Friday, G-23 leaders met at the residence of senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad to evolve their strategy ahead of the crucial CWC meeting.
