Post poll drubbing and 2G scam verdict; Rahul Gandhi to chair CWC meet
Despite electoral drubbing, Congress President Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to chair his first Congress Working Committee meeting on Friday.
However, the agenda for the CWC meeting has not been officially disclosed.
Incidentally, the meeting comes a day after the 2G spectrum case verdict by a special CBI court which acquitted all key accused — two of whom were allies in the UPA government.
The alleged scam had caused political damage to Manmohan Singh-led government and the party was eventually removed from power in 2014.
While senior Congress leaders like P Chidambaram and Kapil Sibal on Thursday said the 2G case verdict has vindicated the Congress’ stand, the newly appointed party president did not react on the matter.
The Congress reportedly wants to take the 2G spectrum allocation issue to people and formulate a plan for this soon. The CWC, which is also the party’s highest decision-making body, might adopt a resolution to this effect. >
