Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday emphasized “unity at all levels” and resilience as she chaired a meeting of the parliamentary party and discussed the current political situation and party strategy in both houses of parliament.
Congress MPs from both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi, attended the meeting at the Central Hall of Parliament.
Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury were also present. This is the first meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) since the party lost the recent assembly elections in five states.
Sonia Gandhi further said that she has received a lot of advice on how to strengthen the Congress and she is working on “many of them”.
“I know very well how disappointed you are with the results of the recent elections. They both deal with their confidence as they choose to embark on their play activities. ” Unity is paramount at all levels of our huge organization and I am determined to do whatever it takes. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. “
Referring to the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting following the results of five state elections last month, where the Congress lost to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab and a disappointing performance in three states, he said: “I have seen the CWC review our performance once. I have met with colleagues. I have received many suggestions on how to strengthen our organization. Many are relevant and I am working on them. “
Calling the road ahead “more challenging than ever,” the congressional president said: “Our revival is not only important to us – it is essential to our democracy and indeed to our society.”
Congress wants to corner the government on the issue of inflation and rising prices of petrol, diesel and LPG.
