RaGa Meets West Bengal Cong Leaders


New Delhi: All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Rahul Gandhi has called senior Congress leaders from West Bengal for a meeting on July 6 in Delhi.

Sources in the party said that the meeting has been convened looking at the attrition within the party and to bring about a coordination within the party looking at the differences within senior party members in terms of whether Congress should join hands with TMC or the Left Front, in the Lok Sabha election in 2019.

The meeting would be a crucial one looking at the possibility of defection of Congress senior leaders to TMC on July 21 when the party would be observing Martyrs’ Day.

Congress high command would have to draw a roadmap ahead of the 2019 elections with a proper directive for party leaders who are divided about whether CPI(M) or the TMC would be their electoral ally.
