"We are a party with a glorious past.
We are the party of the future; it is for us to ensure that it holds out hope for each and every Indian. That is our calling and our obligation.
Let the message go forth from this Plenary that the Congress is aware of its strengths, conscious of its responsibilities.
Together we will build on our strengths.
Together we will honor our responsibilities.
Together we will strive our utmost to prove worthy of the trust and confidence that the people continue to repose in us."
