Congress leaders, workers turn up at 10 Janpath

March 24, 2006 14:05 IST

Congress general secretaries, All India Congress Committee office-bearers and hundreds of workers turned up at 10 Janpath residence of party president Sonia Gandhi in Delhi Friday to express solidarity with her.

Aday after she resigned from Lok Sabha and as chairperson of the National Advisory Council, party general secretaries Janardhan Dwivedi, Margaret Alva and Mukul Wasnik, Union Ministers P K Bansal, Subodhkanth Sahai and Vilas Muttemwar, Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and all office-bearers met Sonia.

Hundreds of party workers, led by Congress member of Parliament Sajjan Kumar and Delhi legislator Mukesh Sharma, shouted pro-Sonia and anti-Bharatiya Janata Party slogans urging the party chief to take back her resignation.

Waving party flags and carrying posters and banners with the message: "Gandhi is an epitome of sacrifice", Congress supporters, including women, shouted, "Soniaji sangarsh karo hum tumhare saath hai (Sonia fight it out, we are with you)."
