Sonia Gandhi Birthday Today

Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi is celebrating her 73rd birthday today.  Sonia Gandhi was born on 9 December 1946.  Sonia Gandhi became the Congress President in the year 1998.  Under her leadership, the Congress party won two Lok Sabha elections and held power at the center.  The Congress remained in power at the Center for 10 consecutive years from 2004 to 2014.

 After the severe defeat of the Congress in 2014, Sonia handed over the command of the Congress to her son Rahul Gandhi in the year 2017.  Rahul Gandhi resigned as Speaker after the 2019 Lok Sabha election results.  Now the command of the party is once again in the hands of Sonia.

 At the same time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Sonia Gandhi on her birthday and wished her a long life.  PM Narendra Modi has tweeted, "Happy birthday to Mrs. Soniaji, I wish her long life and high health.

Today no program will be organized on Sonia Gandhi's birthday.  In fact, Sonia has appealed to the party workers not to celebrate due to the increasing crime against women in the country.  Sonia will take part in the proceedings of the Lok Sabha today and will lead the demonstration in support of the rape victim.
