NEW DELHI - The draft resolutions to be adopted at the Congress plenary are likely to include the party’s projection as one with a “pan-India existence”, and ask the government to probe right-wing groups’ links with terror, party sources said.
Party chief Sonia Gandhi chaired a meeting of the subjects committee to finalise the political, economic and foreign affairs resolutions which will be moved and passed during the three-day event.
Party sources said the political resolution will lay stress on the Congress being “the only national party which has a pan-India existence”.
It will also touch on issues of probity in public life and the internal security challenges facing the country.
They said that some members suggested that the links of right-wing Hindu groups, like the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), with terror should be “seriously investigated”.
