Bhopal: Reeling under crushing defeat in the Lok Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh, the state Congress is mulling an overhaul of the party organisation.

However, no time-line has been set for the re-structuring, Madhya Pradesh Congress President Arun Yadav said on Thursday.

"I can say that the party organisation will be re-structured but no date has been fixed for it," Yadav told reporters here.

The re-structuring of the party does not necessarily mean there is something wrong with the present set-up, he said, adding that the proposed recast would be done both at the state and district level.

The main Opposition party managed to win just two Lok Sabha seats, out of 29, in the just-concluded polls.

Congress, which is out of power in BJP-ruled MP since 2003, also faced comprehensive defeat in the Assembly elections held in November last year.
