The chairperson of the UPA Sonia Gandhi was once again elected leader of the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) at a meeting of party MPs at the Central Hall of Parliament.

Sonia Gandhi was the lone Congress winner in Uttar Pradesh out of 80 seats Lok Sabha seats . She won from Rae Bareli constituency. Congress president Rahul Gandhi lost to Smriti Irani from Amethi.

The meeting was attended by the party’s 52 newly elected Lok Sabha MPs and Rajya Sabha members.

“Smt. Sonia Gandhi elected as the leader of Congress Parliamentary Party! She says, ‘we thank the 12.13 Cr voters for reposing faith in the Congress Party’,” Congress’s chief spokesperson and communications -in- charge Randeep Surjewala tweeted.

The MPs will also elect the Congress leader in Lok Sabha and chalk out the party’s strategy for the upcoming session of Parliament, they said.

This will be the first official meeting that Congress president Rahul Gandhi will attend after the May 25 meeting of the party’s working committee, where he had offered to quit as Congress chief.

The CWC has already rejected his offer to resign and unanimously passed a resolution authorising him to bring structural changes in the party at all levels in a bid to revamp it.
