Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday will meet the Chief Ministers of the Congress-ruled states amid mass resignations in the party after the sweeping defeat in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh, Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath, Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel and Puducherry chief minister V Narayanasamy will be present at the meeting with Rahul.

Recently, several Congress leaders have resigned from their posts in a show of solidarity with Rahul Gandhi, who has announced his decision to step down as party President after the recent Lok Sabha defeat. However, the party wants him to remain in the post.

The Congress won 52 seats in the Lok Sabha Polls. Rahul Gandhi himself was defeated in Amethi which was a stronghold of the Congress since years.
