All India Congress Committee leaders emphasised that no meaning should be attached to the absence of some MPs during the meetings with Gandhi as everyone has been 'accounted for'.
They said party MP from Karnataka, Ambrish, who has not been able to come because of his tight schedule would be in good time for the confidence vote. The same is the case with two other party MPs, including V Naik.
During their brief state-wise meetings with Gandhi, the MPs raised their local issues and gave suggestions on ways to strengthen the organisation.
Earlier, Moily had asserted that there was no question of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] resigning before the July 22 trust vote as he will comfortably win the trial of strength.
