New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday named Adhir Chowdhury as its leader in Lok Sabha.
Chowdhury was named the leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha after party president Rahul Gandhi refused to take up the role.
The party also focused on tomorrow’s meeting called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss his “One nation one election” idea. The Congress has so far opposed it, arguing it from practical, logistical and legal angles.
The question of a Lok Sabha leader opened up after the party’s senior leader Mallikarjun Kharge lost the election. But the Congress was soft-pedalling on the issue as it wanted Rahul Gandhi for the position.
