Amid a raging controversy over the finance ministry note on 2G spectrum allocation, Congress President Sonia Gandhi today met Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar.
Gandhi's 40-minute meeting with Kumar at the Speaker's residence took place ahead of the UPA chairperson's confabulations with senior ministers, including Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee.
However, there was no official word as to what transpired at the meeting with the Speaker which was described by sources as a courtesy call. After meeting Kumar, Gandhi held consultations with Defence Minister A K Antony and her political secretary at her 10, Janpath residence. Later, Mukherjee also had a meeting with Gandhi. This is Mukherjee's second meeting with Gandhi in the last three days.
