Congress Working Committee to meet tomorrow, discuss poll debacle in five states

New Delhi:

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. 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 G23 met at senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s residence in the national capital.

Congress leaders Bhupender Singh Hooda, Manish Tewari, Kapil Sibal and Anand Sharma, Akhilesh Prasad Singh were present at the meeting.

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 (AAP) and Trinamool Congress to replace it as the fulcrum of anti-BJP politics in the country. 

In Uttar Pradesh, Congress won 2 out of 403 seats, in Uttarakhand, the party got 19 out of 70 seats.

In Goa, Congress won 11 out of 40 seats, of the 60 seats of Manipur assembly, the party got victory in mere 5 seats, and in Punjab, of the 117 seats, Congress won 18 seats. (ANI)
