The Congress chief was to address the inaugural session of the Conference along with Speaker of Bangladesh legislature Shirin Chaudhary, Minority Affairs Minister Najma Heptullah and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

Party sources said Gandhi could not participate in the Conference organised by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan as "she is unwell".
