The MPs and the MLAs together met Gandhi at her residence in New Delhi to express their solidarity with the stand taken by her in resigning from the Lok Sabha and from the chairmanship of the National Advisory Council.

According to sources, they complained to Sonia Gandhi that many BJP leaders in Madhya Pradesh had not resigned as MLAs in spite of holding offices of profit.

Sonia dissuaded the Congress MPs and the MLAs from submitting their resignation and asked them to carry on with their work.

The MLAs were accompanied by Union Ministers Suresh Pachori and Kanti Lal Bhuria, both belonging to Madhya Pradesh, during the meeting with the Congress President, according to sources.

Sonia Gandhi had on Friday called upon the party MPs, holding office of profit, not to submit their resignation to express their solidarity with her but to concentrate on their work as there was no need for their resignations.
