New Delhi, December 21: After taking over the reins from his mother Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi will chair a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) on Friday, his first as the Congress president. The CWC, the party’s highest decision-making body, will accord a warm welcome to the Gandhi scion and is likely to discuss the current political situation, including the outcome of the party’s strong performance in the recently-concluded Gujarat Assembly polls.
According to party sources, the 2G spectrum case judgement acquitting all the 16 accused is also likely to be discussed. The alleged scam was used by the Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the hilt while mounting a fierce campaign against the Congress in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
The sources said that the Congress wants to take the 2G issue to the people and is likely to formalise a plan on the same. The CWC is also likely to adopt a resolution to this effect. (Also Read: Waited in Court From 10 AM to 5 PM For 7 Years For Evidence: 2G Judge)
AICC general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said the CWC meeting will commence at 10:30 AM. The agenda for the meeting was, however, not officially disclosed.
The meeting comes just a few days after the Congress won 80 seats in the 182-member Assembly and BJP grabbed 99 seats.
