Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka holidaying in Shimla

Shimla, Nov 25 (IANS) Congress party President Sonia Gandhi along with daughter Priyanka Vadra and her children are holidaying on the outskirts of Simla.

Gandhi and her family landed at the Kalyani helipad near here on Thursday and visited Charabra where Priyanka’s cottage is being constructed, an official said here.

After inspecting the construction work for about an hour, the family left for Wildflower Hall, an Oberoi Group luxury resort just 15 km uphill from Shimla.

“They spent the entire day in the resort,” the official said.

The official added that the Gandhi family is expected to leave for Delhi on Saturday.

Priyanka had earlier visited the under-construction house in June and October this year. The house is likely to be completed early next year.

A two-storey five-room cottage, constructed earlier, was pulled down four years ago as Priyanka wanted the house to gel with the surroundings.
