The living dead
The All India Congress Committee session started off with a faux pas Friday, when a condolence resolution included the names of a few living.
The mistake occurred in the list from Assam. The names of those who informed the party about the death of their leaders too were put in!
The flaw went unnoticed when Congress Working Committee member R K Dhawan read out the resolution in English. It was detected while Meira Kumar was proceeding with the Hindi version.
Janardhan Dwivedi, who was conducting the proceedings, regretted the mistake and apologised.
The incident created much mirth among the delegates, who burst into laughter. The leaders have now got an extra lease of life, Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dixit quipped.
