UPA's presidential nominee Pranab Mukherjee, the senior-most member of Congress Working Committee, will be given a farewell by the party's top brass on Monday including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and party chief Sonia Gandhi.

A meeting of Congress Working Committee has been specially convened on June 25 to give a send off to the UPA's chief troubleshooter. The meeting is also expected to discuss the Presidential poll in the light of UPA ally Mamata Banerjee still not making public its stand on the issue.

Earlier in the day, Mukherjee said in West Bengal that he will resign as finance minister on June 26 and from CWC in a day or two ahead of filing nomination papers for the Presidential election.
