Karnataka Deputy CM G Parameshwara and Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot were also reported to have attended the meeting. The Congress CMs had arrived at Rahul Gandhi’s residence to persuade him to withdraw his decision of resigning from the post of Congress president.

When the results of the Lok Sabha elections were announced in May, all the Congress Chief Ministers had reportedly offered to step down from their respective posts taking the collective responsibility of the embarrassing defeat of the party. Back then Kamal Nath had also offered to resign from the post of the Chief Minister and that of the Chief of Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC). Maintaining his earlier stand, he has again offered to resign from the post of Chief of MPCC, however, the decision regarding his post as the Chief Minister is yet not clear.

Addressing the media after the meeting, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that all the Chief Ministers conveyed the feelings of party workers to Rahul Gandhi and he was hoping that he Gandhi would do the right thing.

In a Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting following the Lok Sabha election results, Rahul Gandhi had lashed out senior Congress leaders Kamal Nath, Ashok Gehlot and P Chidambaram for putting their sons above the party.
