New Delhi: The first meeting of newly elected
Congress Lok Sabha MPs began at the Central Hall of Parliament on Saturday and
they were likely to elect a new leader of the Congress Parliamentary Party
The CPP is currently chaired by Sonia Gandhi.
All 52 Lok Sabha MPs of the Congress are present at the meeting, besides its members in the Rajya Sabha, sources said.
Besides electing a new leader, the MPs will chalk out the party’s strategy for the upcoming session of Parliament, they said.
They will also elect the Congress leader in Lok Sabha.
This will be the first official meeting that Congress president Rahul Gandhi will attend after the May 25 meeting of the party’s working committee, where he had offered to quit as Congress chief.
