The MP reportedly said that the party needed to introspect. The virtual meeting convened by Sonia Gandhi on Thursday saw differences between several former Union ministers who were ministers in the former PM Manmohan Singh government and leaders close to former national president Rahul Gandhi, once again causing a rift within the Congress.
