Congress president Sonia Gandhi [Images] turned 60 on Friday. She has decided not to celebrate her birthday and, instead, will spend the day visiting earthquake-hit areas of Jammu and Kashmir [Images].
Sonia went to the state early Friday morning, party sources said. She is scheduled to visit quake-affected Poonch, Baramulla and Kupwara and will spend time with the affected families.
The party has decided not to organise any programmes on the occasion.
