The move also comes just two days after the Congress Working Committee (CWC) held a five-hour meeting where leaders urged Sonia Gandhi to continue to lead and initiate fundamental ground-level changes required to strengthen the party.
“The CWC unanimously reaffirms its faith in the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and requests the Congress president to lead from the front, address the organisational weaknesses, effect necessary and comprehensive organisational changes in order to take on the political challenges,” it had said after the meeting.
The party is also planning to hold a Chintan Shivir after Parliament budget session ends. Another round of CWC meeting is also scheduled to plan out what points will be taken up in the Chintan Shivir.
Earlier in the day, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra held a review meeting with senior leaders and office-bearers of Uttar Pradesh Congress over the party’s performance in the assembly polls.
In the recently concluded assembly polls, the Congress failed to oust the BJP from Goa, Manipur, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, and could not retain power in Punjab, which was swept by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
