Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) President Jai Prakash Aggarwal (L) offers a garland to Congress Party President Sonia Gandhi (R) during the 83rd plenary session of Indian National Congres in New Delhi on December 19, 2010. Addressing the 83rd Congress plenary Congress party President Smt Sonia Gandhi hit out at the Opposition by saying there can be no tolerance for corruption.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh attended the meeting along with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Defence Minister AK Antony and party treasurer Motilal Vora at the Parliament House Annexe.
Smt Gandhi heads the Subjects Committee, the name of the decision-making panel of the party steering committee or the working committee.
The two days of the three-day plenary session will be held at a sprawling tented township in Burari in northwest Delhi.
The Subject Committee will give final touches to the three major resolutions to be presented and deliberated at the Delhi plenary, party sources said.
It will also finalise the programme of the two-day meet, which will be attended by 1,250 All India Congress Committee (AICC) delegates and around 15,000 other leaders and Congress activists.
The political resolution at the meet, according to party sources, is expected to declare zero tolerance on corruption.
The resolution is likely to dwell on steps to strengthen the party across the country.
While the political resolution and the statement marking the culmination of 125 years of the party are expected to be moved on Sunday, the economic and foreign affairs resolutions are likely to be moved Monday.
Smt Gandhi will set the tone of the deliberations in her presidential address Sunday morning.
Delhi is hosting the Congress plenary for the first time in 32 years. Indira Gandhi, then in the opposition, presided over the last session in Delhi in 1978.
