After undergoing surgery for an undisclosed aliment over a month ago, Sonia Gandhi on Sunday made her first public appearance when she attended a prayer meeting at Raj Ghat on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi's 142nd birth anniversary.

Gandhi, 64, was there for about 15-20 minutes at the memorial along with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and senior BJP leader L K Advani.

After the prayers, Advani was seen talking to Gandhi apparently enquiring about her health.

 

Gandhi had undergone a surgery for undisclosed aliment in August and returned to the capital last month.

 

Though she had attended a couple of meetings with top Congress leaders, she had not attended any public function so far.
