Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Friday held a brainstorming session with city Congress MLAs and MPs to discuss the poor performance of the party in the recent civic polls.
AICC secretary in charge of the state Mohan Prakash and state unit president Manikrao Thakre were also present at the meeting.
Chavan met MPs and ministers from the city individually to discuss the party`s poll debacle and also interacted with newly elected corporators, party sources said.
He also discussed appointment for key posts like leader of opposition in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, they added.
Sources informed that Chavan and Mohan Prakash also discussed the fallout of the Kripashankar issue and selection of a new Mumbai Congress chief to replace him.
Congress leader Kripashankar Singh is currently facing charges of amassing wealth disproportionate to known sources of income.
Party MP from Mumbai north Sanjay Nirupam told reporters that Congress performance in the recent elections was discussed at the meeting in detail.
"Chavan and Mohan Prakash sought to know where we fell short," he said.
When asked about raids on Kripashankar`s premises, he said the party would not interfere since the process is on as per High Court orders.
