Ahmedabad: Rahul Gandhi will meet Congress leaders in Gujarat, who have already begun analysing the election result, to review and get insight about the electoral outcome. Gujarat Congress organised a three-day conclave, which ends today, to study the poll results. During the ‘chintan shivir’ (introspection camp), Congress leaders and workers in Gujarat have analysed the district-wise election results and will discuss the road-map ahead with party chief Rahul Gandhi in view of the 2019 Lok Sabha election. In the elections, the results for which were declared on December 18, the Congress could not wrest power from the BJP even though its tally increased to 77 seats from 61 last time (2012). Rahul Gandhi, who campaigned extensively and aggressively in Gujarat for the Assembly elections, will address a gathering after the ‘chintan shivir’ (introspection camp). Mr Gandhi will meet newly-elected MLAs as well as leaders from Gujarat’s four zones — north, south, central Gujarat, and Saurashtra — separately for four hours in Ahmedabad today, before addressing the gathering of party workers in the evening. Rahul Gandhi will begin the day with a visit to Somnath Temple.
