Some Punjab MLAs also met Rahul today along with the district chiefs as they shared with him their assessment of the ground situation in the state as well as the rise of AAP.

Sources said most leaders called for unity within the state organisation with many favouring handing over of its leadership to former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, who has sought the replacement of incumbent state unit chief Partap Singh Bajwa.
