Gandhi will skip a crucial party meeting for preparations of the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ and internal elections of the Congress on Thursday, where all general secretaries, in-charges and PCC presidents have been invited.

Rahul Gandhi has been often criticised by the BJP for his frequent visits abroad.

Meanwhile, Top Congress leaders will meet on Thursday to discuss the party’s strategy for the upcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament.

The Congress is likely to raise the issues of inflation and unemployment, besides the falling value of the Rupee and the economic situation in the country, during the session.

The party will also seek a discussion in Parliament on the Chinese transgressions along the border in eastern Ladakh and the Agnipath scheme.

The Congress party will also seek answers from the government on the demands of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, which spearheaded the agitation against the now-scrapped farm laws, and the setting up of the committee on MSP.
