New Delhi,November 3: A day ahead of her party's planned march to the Rashtrapati Bhawan, Congress president Sonia Gandhi held a one-on-one meeting with President Pranab Mukherjee on late Monday evening. 

While there was no official communication from either the Congress party or the President's office about the details of the meeting, it lasted for nearly 40 minutes.

Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi will lead a 'protest march' of members of the party's highest decision-making body, Congress Working Committee (CWC) and party lawmakers on today.
