New Delhi: Sonia Gandhi and Rahul
Gandhi were not present in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday despite a
Congress whip to its MPs in both the Houses of Parliament to
be present in case of a vote on price issue but the party
downplayed their absence.

"Yes it is correct that there was an advisory for the
members to be present but the Congress President and the
general secretary also have party responsibilities and
organizational preoccupation.

"The reasons must have been very compelling (for their
absence)," Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said adding he
was not aware of the exact reason for their absence.

The party had issued a whip to its MPs to be present
in Parliament against the backdrop of the opposition move to
press for an adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha on the price
rise issue, which could be followed by a vote.

Congress sources said the whip has been issued to
ensure presence of members in Parliament.
