With no signs of any end to the confrontation with the Opposition, Congress President Sonia Gandhi is expected to unveil the party's plan to counter the campaign at a meeting of party MPs in New Delhi on Monday.


Gandhi will be addressing the meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) on Monday, the last day of the winter session that saw longest ever shutdown of Parliament by Opposition demanding Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the 2G Spectrum issue.

This will be the CPP's first meeting in the winter session.

This will also be the first interaction between Gandhi and party MPs after the Bihar assembly polls in which the party received a drubbing despite of Rahul Gandhi playing a major role in campaigning.

The recent days have seen Gandhi grappling with one controversy after another including Commonwealth Games mess and the Adarsh Housing scam, which saw a change of guard in Maharashtra and the party showing the door to CPP Secretary Suresh Kalmadi, who is the Chairman of the Organising Committee of the CWG.

While each Parliament session used to have two CPP general body meetings, one soon at the start and another shortly before end, recent sessions have seen the meetings reduced to just one.
