Addressing the media, Congress leader P Chidambaram said, "Congress party will raise the issue of high inflation in the forthcoming session of Parliament and demand a full discussion on the subject as well as substantial relief for the people of India."

The party is also discussing, though unofficially, to change the floor leader in the Lok Sabha after the party was routed in the West Bengal Assembly elections, where the current leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is the state president.

The Congress wants to bring in a leader who could coordinate with the entire opposition and oppose the government jointly in the house as the party has less number and needs coordination with the DMK, the TMC and the Shiv Sena.

However, a section of the party is batting for Rahul Gandhi but sources say that he is not keen as the floor leader will not get the status of Leader of Opposition as Congress does not fulfil the criteria.
