Background: The Congress President Mr U.N.Dhebar, called upon the nation here today, to actively help eliminate all those forces that tend to disintegrate the unity of India.
The President, who was addressing the gathering (which apparently was rather poor -- only 200 being present out of a total of about 550 members) immediately after he had hoisted the Congress flag at the Jhanda Chowk, said the Congress would know no rest until the aim of national unity, democracy, social justice, and prosperity was reached.
Prime Minister Nehru, Defence Minister Krishna Menon, Finance Minister T.T. Krishna machari,Assam's Chief Minister Mr. B.P.Chaliha, were among those present at the function.
Chairman of the Reception Committee, Mahendra Mohan Choudhury stood at the saluting base beside the Congress President as the flag broke at the mast-head.
