Sonia sympathises with Mumbai attacks victims, cancels bday celebrations

Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who turned 62 today, is not celebrating her birthday as a mark of tribute to the victims of Mumbai terror attacks.


New Delhi, Dec 9 : Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who turned 62 today, is not celebrating her birthday as a mark of tribute to the victims of Mumbai terror attacks.

Home Minister P Chidambaram and Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi were among the first who met her and wished her.

Last week, the party had said that Sonia Gandhi would not celebrate her birthday, and asked workers not to visit her.

Party workers, who visited their president's residence to greet her, celebrated the ocassion silently.

Sonia Gandhi was born in a middle class Turin business family. She met former Prime Minster Rajiv Gandhi at the Cambridge University, and they got married in 1968. Then she came to India to live with her mother-in-law and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Initially, Sonia Gandhi stayed out of public life for a long period after Rajiv Gandhi's assassination in May 1991. But joined the Congress party in 1997.

She plunged into active politics in 1998 when she campaigned and eventually took over the reins of the Congress party.
