Sonia Gandhi to chair Congress key meet today amid calls for introspection post-Bihar debacle

The Congress party, which is facing it's biggest existential crisis. After the grand old party suffered electoral setback in Bihar elections and bypolls, voices of discontent within the party have resurfaced with a section of leaders calling for action and introspection.

Former Union Minister and senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal in his unfiltered critique of the leadership has called for reform and accountability for the debacles. While many, including Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to Delhi Congress president Anil Chaudhary, slammed Kapil Sibal for raising questions, the former law minister was backed by Karti Chidambaram who called for an 'action' to survive.

Amid this war of words among party leaders on poll defeat, Sonia Gandhi is expected to chair a special committee meeting today at 5 pm.
