Amid the crisis in the Congress over party chief Rahul Gandhi's insistence to step down from his post, Congress' Chief Ministers and some other senior leaders met here over dinner at the residence of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath.
The meeting of the Chief Ministers, who were in the national capital to attend the meeting of the Niti Aayog's governing council on Saturday, were understood to have been called to appeal to Gandhi to remain as party President.
The Congress President offered to step down from his post during the Congress Working Committee meeting on May 25, following the party's dismal performance in the Lok Sabha elections. The party managed to win only 52 seats.
Though the CWC rejected the offer, Gandhi remained adamant on quitting.
