New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi
is expected to articulate the party thinking on issues like
the situation in Kashmir, alleged corruption in Commonwealth
Games preparations and nuclear liability bill when she
addresses a meeting of Congress Parliamentary Party here on
August 19.

Gandhi, who is the CPP Chairperson, is also likely to
speak on the coming assembly elections in Bihar.

This will be the first meeting of CPP since the monsoon
session of Parliament began on July 26. It could not be held
earlier as Gandhi was in the US attending to her ailing
mother.

A meeting of the Congress Working Committee is also
expected soon to finalise the schedule for the Congress
President`s election. Gandhi has created a record by being at
the helm of the organisation since April 1998 and she is set
to get a fourth term.
