Gandhi has generally been reticent about celebrating his birthdays with any fanfare, and is known to leave Delhi to celebrate it with his close friends.

But this will be his first birthday as the Congress president and he plans to spend the day with Congress workers at the party headquarters in New Delhi. Party units, including the Youth Congress and Congress women's wing, have also planned events.

It can be recalled that Gandhi was the most preferred choice as prime minister for 24 per cent of those polled while PM Modi was ahead at 34 per cent.
