New Delhi, Jan 23 (IANS) Newly-elected mayors from Chhattisgarh are coming to meet Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi here on Friday in the presence of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and State President Mohan Markam.
In the state, the Congress swept the mayoral elections in all the 10 posts. After this win this is the first time that the mayors will be meeting the party top leadership in Delhi.
