The Core group of Congress led by Senior AK Antony will meet today to discuss the strategy for upcoming Parliament session slated to begin from June 17. The core committee of the party will discuss the appointment of Leader of Congress in 17th Lok Sabha.

Earlier on June 1, Sonia Gandhi, former Congress President, and UPA Chairperson, on Saturday, was elected as Leader of Congress Parliamentary Party in the meeting of all 52 MPs held in the national Capital.

It should be noted that Congress President Rahul Gandhi had made it clear that all its 52 MPs will provide no walkover to the BJP.

Taking to Twitter Congress President Rahul Gandhi on June 1 said, ‘The Congress Party may have just 52 Lok Sabha members, but we will work together like a pride of brave-hearted lions to protect our Constitution & Institutions & to fearlessly do our duty as the leading Opposition party. The BJP will have no walkover in Parliament’.

The first session of the 17th Lok Sabha will begin from June 17th and will continue till July 26. While the President Ram Nath Kovind will address the sitting of both the houses on June 20.

The Economic Survey will be released on the 4th of July a day before. While next day, that is on July 5th, new Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will table the full-fledged budget in the House.

Among other issues that the core group is likely to discuss is Rahul Gandhi’s unwillingness to continue as Congress President.

It should be noted that Rahul Gandhi in CWC meet on May 25 taking moral responsibility of the defeat had offered to step down from his post. Reportedly despite the CWC rejected his resignation, now an MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi is said to be unfazed.

Many Leaders have met Gandhi and tried to convince him to continue leading the party.

The Congress faced a crushing defeat in national polls and won 52 seats, which is only 8 more than it got in 2014 national polls. It has also lost some of its strongholds across the country including Rahul Gandhi’s Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and Jyotiraditya Scindia‘s Guna in Madhya Pradesh.
