Congress will hold a meeting of AICC here on 17 January to prepare strategy for the Lok Sabha polls, triggering speculation that Rahul Gandhi may be anointed the party’s prime ministerial candidate there. The announcement was made by party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi, which comes close on the heels of the party’s drubbing in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Delhi.
