Sources suggest that the Congress president has set a series of meetings over the weekend with Congress top brass to discuss various issues concerning the party’s move ahead.

This meeting will be held in-person, all the meetings in the past few months had been held virtually given the Covid-19 situation and protocols. Sonia Gandhi had held a few virtual meetings in the past few months where the letter was discussed.
