New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will today chair the meeting of Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leaders of states, where the party is in opposition.

The meeting, which is scheduled to take place at 3 pm, will take place a day ahead of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meet, which has been called to discuss the current political situation.

Rahul is expected to take stock of the situation in states where the party is in opposition so as to devise a strategy to strengthen the party there.

Congress is in power in only nine states, including Karnataka and Kerala.

The CWC is expected to deliberate on a host of issues to take on the Narendra Modi government, which it forced onto the back foot over the land bill and alleged wrongdoing by BJP leaders, including two chief ministers.

The meeting comes days after the land ordinance was allowed to lapse as the government, facing stiff all-round resistance, decided not to re-promulgate it for the fourth time.
