Congress interim chief Sonia Gandhi presided over the party’s election committee meeting here on Saturday to decide on the candidates for the Maharashtra Assembly polls. However, the absence of former party President Rahul Gandhi was noticed more.
Replying to a query, Rahul Gandhi’s office said that he didn’t attend the meeting as he’s not a member of the election panel.
Of late, Rahul Gandhi has been giving a slip to important party meetings. He didn’t attend the September 12 meet, chaired by Sonia Gandhi, where a slew of decisions were taken and the national economic situation was also discussed.
