Sonia Gandhi visits Allahabad

Allahabad, March 7: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday, March 7 paid a private visit to the city, her second such tour here in less than a month.

According to UPCC general secretary Mukund Tiwari, Gandhi landed in the city around noon and drove straight to the historic Anand Bhavan where she spent nearly four hours before boarding her return flight to the national capital.


Local Congress leaders rushed to Anand Bhavan upon learning about the party president's sudden visit, Tiwari said.

"Gandhi greeted us before saying politely that she was here in connection with work related to various trusts named after former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru," he said. There was, however, no meeting with them. Notably, the Congress chief had come to the city on a similar visit on February 13-14.
