New Delhi: Amid the political clash among the Congress party leaders in Punjab and Chhattisgarh, Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi conducted a meeting with the core party leaders on Tuesday in Delhi to discuss the upcoming Assembly elections in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur, and Goa.

The meeting reportedly was held at All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters to discuss membership, training, agitation program, and strategy for the upcoming assembly polls.

Presiding over the meeting, Sonia Gandhi stated that there is a lack of “clarity and cohesion” even among several state-level party leaders on policy issues ahead of various state assembly polls.

She urged the party leaders to focus on discipline and unity “overriding personal ambitions” as the party members need to work towards strengthening the organisation.

The meeting was attended by former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi with other Congress leaders, including Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

The interim party president while stressing the need for the party to win the upcoming elections urged the party leaders to fight what she called the “diabolical campaign” of the ruling BJP and its mentor Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologically.

Earlier, in the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting which was held on October 16, it was decided that the organisational polls will be conducted next year and for that, a membership drive will be launched from November 1.

The party is likely to hold its organisational election in 2022 and have its president by October.
