When Rajiv Gandhi proposed Sonia in a 'special way' in a restaurant

09 Décembre 2017

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday wished main Opposition Congress leader Sonia Gandhi a long and healthy life on her 71st birthday.

Speaking on the occasion the party leaders said that Ms Gandhi has been successful to keep the party organised and gave a new direction to the party.

The Congress party also wished Gandhi. On the day, after members of the Congress Working Committee led by Sharad Pawar questioned her foreign origin and posed her as a liability, Sonia Gandhi resigned as the party president. Since then she is the boss of the Congress. "On the occasion of your birthday, I wish for your good health and long life".
