Top leaders of Congress are scheduled to meet on October 16 to hold talks over the 'current political situation', and state elections next year, said the party's general secretary K C Venugopal on Saturday.
The party is also likely to decide on the schedule for electing the new Congress chief.
Taking it to Twitter, Venugopal wrote, “A meeting of the Congress Working Committee will be held on Saturday, the 16th October 2021 at 10.00 a.m. at AICC Office, 24, Akbar Road, New Delhi to discuss current political situation, forthcoming assembly elections & Organisational elections.”
Earlier, senior Congress leader and another member of the G-23 group, Kapil Sibal shot off a new letter to the Gandhis: "In Congress, there is no elected president now. Who is taking calls? We don't know who is taking decisions in the party."
Without naming the Gandhis, Sibal said, "We are G-23, definitely not Ji Huzoor-23. We will keep raising issues.”
Following this, party workers protested outside his house for his remarks.
The demonstrations were criticised by the leaders of "G-23" or group of 23 party dissidents, who had sent a letter to Sonia Gandhi last year demanding sweeping changes in the party.
It is to be mentioned that five states including Punjab, that has recently witnessed tremendous political crisis and Uttar Pradesh will go for polls next year.
