Amid increasing tension between Pakistan and India, Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi has canceled a meeting of the CWC (Congress Working Committee) and the ‘Jan Sankalp rally’, scheduled on Thursday.

After around six decades, a Congress Working Committee meeting was arranged to be held in Gujarat. All the bigwigs of Congress were supposed to be participating, including ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, and new General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi as well.

The Congress Working Committee is the grand old party’s highest decision-making body.

Randeep Surjewala, a spokesman of Congress posted a Twitter message that reads, Mr. Gandhi has delayed both public rally and CWC meeting due to the prevailing situation in the country.

Congress leaders in the rally were to address a public gathering at Adalaj’s TriMandir in the afternoon.

A special committee was formed for the Congress Working Committee meeting, which was to discuss foreign, economic and social policies of India.

Congress workers were eagerly waiting for the CWC meeting. A resolution was also passed to strengthen the democratic institutions and the Panchayat Raj.

An opposition leader of Gujarat Assembly, Paresh Dhanani said that “Our President has postponed Thursday’s CWC meet at Trimandir, looking at the prevalent situation. The decision regarding the same will be taken after the situation is stabilized.”
