NEW DELHI: Congress President Sonia Gandhi interacted with party MPs at a dinner hosted today by her on the penultimate day of the monsoon session of parliament which has been a virtual washout.

The dinner was also attended by party vice president Rahul Gandhi.

The dinner meeting came against the backdrop of the party's campaign for the ouster of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in the session in the wake of Lalit Modi controversy.

The demand was today met with a strong counter-offensive with Swaraj launching a no-holds-barred attack on Congress accusing it of having taken money to help Ottavio Quattrochchi and Warren Anderson flee India even as government rejected the demand for her resignation.
