Sonia Gandhi on two day-visit to Mumbai


Share post:


Mumbai: Congress leader Sonia Gandhi will arrive in Mumbai on Thursday, marking her first visit to Mumbai in nine years to attend the two-day India National Opposition Conference to be held in a five-star hotel in Mumbai from August 31.

Accompanied by her son and MP Rahul Gandhi, she will be received by top party leaders like Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, state chief Nana Patole, and other senior state and central functionaries.

However, she has visited other parts of Maharashtra innumerable times in the past three decades as she closely monitors state politics despite her frail health, said a senior leader, requesting anonymity.

Incidentally, on all her previous tours to Mumbai, the Congress was in power in alliance with the Nationalist Congress Party in Maharashtra.

But during her upcoming trip, her party is part of the Opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) bloc.
