All the exit polls say the Congress will be defeated by the NDA. Rahul, who led the Congress' poll campaign, is expected to brief the spokespersons on the Congress' position depending on the results that Friday throws up, in an effort to ensure that the party sends out a clear, coherent message in a single voice, sources said.
In the meeting, the leaders are expected to discuss the party's strategy post-results.
Senior ministers like Kamal Nath have said that the result will be a reflection on the performance of the Congress-led UPA government for the last 10 years.
However, Congress president Sonia Gandhi has allegedly directed the party leaders to defend Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and reportedly said that there should be collective responsibility for defeat, which the exit polls say could be the Congress's worst ever.
The Congress has dismissed the exit poll findings and had refused to participate in any exit poll debate in Tv channels.
