Congress president Rahul Gandhi chaired the first meeting of the Congress Working Committee on Sunday, 22 July, in the Parliament Annexe building in New Delhi.

During the CWC meet, called to discuss the strategy to take on the BJP in the 2019 elections, a few members raised the issue of the Congress’ booth-level management.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi called the CWC "an institution comprising of experience and energy, as a bridge between the past, present and the future," party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted.

In her address at the CWC meeting, United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi claimed that the reverse countdown of the Narendra Modi-regime had begun.

Sonia Gandhi said that they would have to rescue “people from a dangerous regime that is compromising the democracy of India”. “We are committed to making alliances work and we are all with him (Rahul Gandhi) in this endeavour,” she added.

Senior Congress leaders Janardan Dwivedi and Digvijaya Singh were also invited for CWC meeting but they skipped the event.
