Amidst the speculations of a change of PCC leadership, meeting of the Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee leaders with party’s Vice President Rahul Gandhi began at the latter’s official residence in New Delhi on Monday.
Rahul is meeting the leaders to discuss the long pending demand for a new OPCC Chief.
Congress leaders Naba Das, Srikant Jena, Jayadev Jena, AICC secretary Shubankar Sarkar, Niranjan Patnaik and others are attending the meeting in the presence of Odisha in-charge BK Hariprasad. Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra and PCC President Prasad Harichandan are also present in the meeting.
Even though the Congress High Command is yet to take a call on the possible candidate, name of senior leader Niranjan Patnaik, who held the post earlier, is doing the rounds.
