The three-day plenary starting on Saturday will see a participation of over 20,000 Congress workers from across the state. Held after the gap of four years, the meet will mark the 125th anniversary of the party.
To accommodate the 7,000 Congress delegates that will be staying at the venue, tents have been put up inside the 400-acre complex along with portable toilets.
Separate rooms have been arranged in the complex for the party top brass, including Dr Singh and Sonia Gandhi. The other party workers will either stay in New Delhi or will be put up in tents at the residences of Congress MPs.
With the who’s who of the Congress attending the plenary, Burari is on high alert.
Apart from accommodation, the AICC has also made food arrangements for delegates.
The venue will have four food courts with a capacity of 2,000 people and will serve delicacies from across the country. In charge of the food arrangements at the plenary is Delhi’s Social Welfare Minister Mangat Ram Singhal.
A makeshift hospital, a post office and railway and air ticket reservation counters will also be put up at the complex.
“The entire function is being organised by the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee. This is a party event and the city government is not involved in the preparations,” said DPCC President Jai Prakash Aggarwal.
