New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi on Thursday met Delhi
Congress MPs, MLAs and councillors as well as district and
block presidents at the Pradesh Congress Committee office,
where chaos prevailed as members jostled to speak to him.
"Rahul Gandhi wanted to visit DPCC office, so he came
today. Since he was coming here so I called our MPs, MLAs,
councillors, district and block presidents," J P Agarwal, DPCC
President, said.

Gandhi stayed at the Delhi Congress headquarters for
about 45 minutes and interacted with partymen. Chaos prevailed
for a while, when some of Congress workers tried to gift shawl
to Gandhi at the same time.

Agarwal, however, played down incident. "In their
eagerness to present gift to Rahul Gandhi, some of the workers
gathered around him as a result there was some chaotic
situation," he said.

Refuting speculation on rift in the party on the issue of
trifurcation of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, the DPCC
said there is no rift between the government and the party.

"There are no differences between the government and the
party. Show me a house where there is no difference of opinion
among the family members, so is the case here. There is no
rift between the government and the party," Agarwal said.
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Delhi Health and
Family Welfare Minister Kiran Walia and Union Women and Child
Development Minister Krishna Tirath were among those present
at the DPCC office.
