After facing defeat in Bihar assembly elections and by-elections, a meeting of the special committee to assist Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi is going to take place on Tuesday.

According to information received from sources, there will be a meeting at 5 pm through video conferencing but its agenda is not clear.

This meeting is taking place at a time when the issue of review in Congress has been emerging after the defeat in the elections.

Kapil Sibal, one of the 23 Congress leaders who wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi a few months ago to demand reforms in the party, has demanded a fresh review of the defeat, after which he has come under fire from fellow Congress leaders.

From Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to Delhi Congress president Anil Chaudhary, Congress leaders are targeting Sibal for raising questions.

Amidst all this, the meeting of Sonia Gandhi’s advisory committee is giving rise to a lot of speculation.

In August, a special committee was formed to assist the interim president of the Congress, Sonia Gandhi, on organisational and operational matters.

Ahmed Patel, who is in hospital, KC Venugopal, AK Antony, Ambika Soni, Mukul Wasnik, Randeep Surjewala are its members.
