"Yeh hamari behad khushmati hai ki ham Sonia Gandhi ke netritva mein kam kar rahe hai (It is our good fortune that we are working under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi)," the prime minister said while addressing the Congress plenary.
He also appreciated the Congress president's clean politics and her agenda for eradicating corruption.
