To mark the completion of one year in office on May 22, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will hold a press conference on May 24.
As part of the UPA-II’s first anniversary celebrations, Singh is likely to invite BSP’s Mayawati, SP’s Mulayam
Singh Yadav and RJD’s Lalu Prasad for dinner in acknowledgement of the ‘support’ they extended to his government during the recent cut motions in Parliament.
The date of the dinner is being finalised. But before that, he would, in the presence of Congress chief and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, bring out a “Report to the People” to hardsell the claim that his is a “Government that Works”.
The report would highlight the Congress-led government’s achievements, including the right to education act and the passing of the women’s bill in the Rajya Sabha.
As on earlier occasions only UPA allies in government would participate in this programme at the PM’s residence.
This would be followed by dinner to which supporting parties are likely to be invited.
