New Delhi, Nov 5: The Congress Working Committee (CWC) will meet twice ahead of the November 17 session of the All India Congress Committee (AICC).
The CWC, the highest decision making body of the party that heads the ruling coalition at the Centre, will meet here on November seven to prepare for the one-day session at the Talkatora stadium.
For the first time, Amethi MP Rahul Gandhi will attend the deliberations of the CWC.
In the recent reshuffle of the party's central apparatus, Mr Gandhi was inducted into the CWC and was made AICC General Secretary in charge of Youth Congress and National Students Union of India.
The CWC would meet again on November 16 to fine-tune the draft resolutions that will be presented before the AICC session the next day for its ratification.
It was the normal practice to have political, economic and foreign policy resolutions separately. However, senior leaders are planning to move one comprehensive resolution at the end of the November 17 meeting.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi would chair the CWC meetings which will be held at her official 10 Janpath residence. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other senior leaders of the Party would attend the meeting.
At the November 7 meet of the CWC, the Congress leaders would also discuss the developments in Pakistan. On the internal front, it would discuss the political situation in Karnataka and the forthcoming elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh besides Indo-US Nuclear deal.
The AICC session, among other things, would take up for consideration an amendment to the party Constitution to make a single category of party members instead of the current classifications like 'primary' and 'active' members.
