The Congress Working Committee is likely to authorise its president to decide on electoral alliances keeping in view the larger party goal of defeating the BJP.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted from the meeting saying, “No sacrifice is too great for the goal of defeating BJP”.

The tweet came at a time when the larger opposition is urging the Congress to form potential anti-BJP alliances in states where it is still possible such as in Delhi.

Rahul Gandhi posted photos of the CWC meeting and wrote: “On the anniversary of Gandhi Ji’s historic Dandi March, the Congress Working Committee in Ahmedabad, resolved to defeat the RSS/ BJP ideology of fascism, hatred, anger & divisiveness. No sacrifice is too great in this endeavour; no effort too little; this battle will be won.”

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also spoke at the CWC highlighting the failures of the BJP government and how to take on the BJP united.

Earlier in the day, former prime minister Manmohan Singh opened the meeting highlighting the failures of the BJP government on the front of economy and employment and urged his cadres to recall the achievements of the UPA coalition.

While Singh flagged “religious and communal divides being created in society “ under the watch of the NDA Government, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying while he plays the victimhood card, the actual victims of his policies are the people of India.

In veiled references to post Pulwama events, Sonia said the ruling party is politicising issues of national interest.

Manmohan Singh cited the achievements of the UPA Government on the front of economy, social inclusion and growth to say people need to be reminded of the work done by the erstwhile Congress led government.

Speaking after Singh, Sonia Gandhi said the PM was playing a victim and the fact is people are suffering because of his policies.

The meeting will be followed by Jan Sankalp Rally, which Rahul Gandhi will address.

Patidar Leader Hardik Patel will join the party at the rally.

The CWC meeting began with a moment of silence for the CRPF jawans killed in the Pulwama attack.
