New Delhi, October 15

The Congress Working Committee (CWC) will meet here on Saturday under the chairmanship of party president Sonia Gandhi, 16 days after two leaders of the “G-23 group” demanded an urgent gathering of the higher decision-making body of the party to discuss the current challenges.

The Saturday’s meeting will be the first time the CWC will be convened since the outbreak of Covid.

The schedule of the Congress’ internal elections, along with the poll to the post of the party president, CWC, and central election committee, is expected to be taken up.

The last meeting of the CWC, held on January 22, had postponed the organisational elections until the Covid situation improved.

Of late, the Congress has been facing massive factionalism in Punjab, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan; the pro-revamp “G-23 group” has been active.

In Punjab, trouble continues between state chief Navjot Singh Sidhu and CM Charanjit Singh Channi. In Chhattisgarh, Health Minister TS Singh Deo is reminding the party of its promise to rotate the CM’s post after 2.5 years of rule; while in Rajasthan, former Deputy CM Sachin Pilot is seeking a Cabinet reshuffle while CM Ashok Gehlot looks the other way.

On September 29, former minister and G-23 leader Kapil Sibal had demanded that a CWC meeting be convened urgently to discuss the challenges and defections.
