At today's meeting, the Congress vice-president is expected to take stock of the situation in states where the party is in opposition so as to devise a strategy to strengthen the party there.
Congress is in power in only nine states, including Karnataka and Kerala.
The CWC, which is meeting on September 8, is expected to deliberate on a host of issues to take on the Narendra Modi government, which it forced onto the back foot over the land bill and alleged wrongdoing by BJP leaders, including two chief ministers.
The meeting comes days after the land ordinance was allowed to lapse as the government, facing stiff all-round resistance, decided not to re-promulgate it for the fourth time.

The Congress Working Committee is likely to extend party president Sonia Gandhi's term by another year when it meets here on September 8.

The current term of Sonia, who has been at the helm for 18 years, is expiring in December, sources in the party said. Party sources said Rahul Gandhi, who was elevated as vice president in January 2013, was not yet ready to take charge. There was also the talk that any change in the leadership before the Bihar elections could prove counterproductive.
