New Delhi: With the image of his government in tatters, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will present the last Report Card of UPA-II on May 22 in which he is expected to list the positives such as Direct Benefit Transfer and FDI in retail in a bid to boost the sagging morale of Congressmen with elections less than a year away.

Battered by series of scams and the recent sacking of Cabinet Ministers PK Bansal and Ashwani Kumar, the Prime Minister's task to present a positive picture is not easy.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi and leaders of UPA constituents will be present at a dinner in which Singh will present the Report Card on the fourth anniversary of UPA-II.

The Prime Minister is expected to unveil plans ahead of the passage of much-talked about National Food Security Bill and the Land Acquisition Bill, seen by the party as game-changer in the next general elections.

Representatives of Trinamool Congress and DMK will not be at the dinner as the two key allies have left the UPA. "I think the greatest advantage we have is because of the most incompetent opposition in Independent India,” Congress leaders like Mani Shankar Aiyar said.
