The Congress Working Committee (CWC) is scheduled to meet on Sunday to discuss the poll debacle in five States and the current political situation.

The meeting will be held at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) office at 4 pm according to a report by ANI.

Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi , Rahul Gandhi and Party General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra are under fire for disastrous poll results yet again.

While Congress G-23 leaders, who are members of the Congress Working Committee, are set to raise their demand for reforms in the party during the CWC meeting, sources said on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, Congress G-23 met at senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s residence in the national capital.

Congress leaders Bhupinder Singh Hooda , Manish Tewari, Kapil Sibal and Anand Sharma, Akhilesh Prasad Singh were present at the meeting. Other leaders are said to have joined virtually .

As per sources, the leaders sought accountability for the poll debacle be fixed and changes be made in the composition of the Congress Working Committee, the party’s highest decision-making body. The issue of organisational polls was also discussed.

Senior Congress leader and MP Shashi Tharoor tweeted, “All of us who believe in @INCIndia are hurting from the results of the recent assembly elections. It is time to reaffirm the idea of India that the Congress has stood for and the positive agenda it offers the nation – and to reform our organisational leadership in a manner that will reignite those ideas and inspire the people. One thing is clear – Change is unavoidable if we need to succeed. ”

The results of five assembly polls came as a shock to the Congress which was hoping to do well to revive its prospects for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls and to fend off the emerging challenge from the Aam Aadmi Party and the Trinamool Congress to replace it as the fulcrum of anti-Bharatiya Janata Party politics in the country.
