Amid talks of a leadership change in the party, the Congress Working Committee (CWC) would hold its meeting in New Delhi on Monday.

The meeting comes after several Congress leaders have reportedly written to Sonia Gandhi seeking leadership change.

However, the party said that the meeting of the highest decision-making body of the Congress will discuss the current political issues. However, the issue of leadership still remains an important topic within the CWC.

“A CWC meeting will be held on August 24 at 11 am via videoconference,” tweeted Congress general secretary (Organisation) KC Venugopal on Saturday.

The meeting comes weeks after the Congress saw a stormy meeting of its Rajya Sabha MPs wherein certain leaders sought introspection on the 2019 poll debacle.

Thereafter, a bunch of leaders wrote a letter to Congress interim chief Sonia Gandhi on issue of leadership change and elections in the CWC.

Sacked Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha said that 100 party leaders have written the letter to Sonia Gandhi for making “sweeping changes” in the party.

This has, however, been denied by the Congress and its chief spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala.
