Senior Congress leaders Pranab Mukherjee and A K Antony had a meeting with party chief Sonia Gandhi on Friday morning but there was no immediate word on the leadership issue in Maharashtra.

Mukherjee sped past waiting mediapersons without answering any query.

On Thursday night in Mumbai, Congress failed to choose a successor to Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, who quit in the wake of Mumbai terror attacks.

Till Thursday night when Mukherjee and Antony had held consultation on the issue in Mumbai, Maharashtra minister Ashok Chavan appeared to have an edge over his colleague Narayan Rane. Thereafter, the two leaders came to Delhi to report to Gandhi.
