New Delhi (August 11,2023) : Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi has called a meeting of party MPs on Saturday to discuss the suspension of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury from Lok Sabha. Chowdhury, the leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, was suspended for unruly behavior during the budget session of Parliament. He had allegedly manhandled the Speaker and used unparliamentary language.

The meeting of Congress MPs is likely to be held at the party headquarters in Delhi. It is expected that Gandhi will take stock of the situation and discuss the party's future course of action. The suspension of Chowdhury has been condemned by the Congress party. They have accused the government of using the Speaker's authority to silence the opposition.

The meeting of Congress MPs is also likely to discuss the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa, and Manipur. The Congress party is hoping to make a comeback in these states. The meeting is also likely to discuss the party's strategy for the upcoming monsoon session of Parliament. The session is likely to be stormy, with the opposition parties gearing up to corner the government on a variety of issues.
