Congress celebrates 126th foundation day
New Delhi: Congress today celebrated its 126th foundation day with its chief Sonia Gandhi unfurling the party tricolour at a function here.
On a rain swept morning, top Congress leaders including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, his cabinet colleagues and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit assembled at the party headquarters where Gandhi hoisted the flag amidst singing of inspirational songs.
For Gandhi and Singh, 2010 had been tough politically with the party and the government led by it facing sustained opposition attack over a slew of corruption charges relating to 2G spectrum and Commonwealth Games.
The party had last week held a plenary session here which also marked the completion of 125 years of the organisation.
