When we were studying we were informed that it is called Congress grass because at that time congress was the ruling party and all of them put upon their heads a cap which was called Gandhi topi (Now we hardly see that attire).Parthenium grows gregariously. If you see from the top you will see the bed of white flowers at a stretch which was also seen at a stretch of Gandhi topis whenever there was a rally or a sabha/ meeting of the congress people which was a common feature at that time.And hence the name Congress grass!
