Punjab settled! Congress top leaders head to Shimla for a holiday
Shimla : Just hours after completing the Punjab tussle and handing over the power to newly appointed Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi headed to Shimla for a holiday.
According to a report, both went to Priyanka Gandhi's cottage located amid forests of pine and cedar in the suburbs of the Himachal Pradesh capital where she is already holidaying with her family.
Sonia Gandhi had reached Chandigarh via flight and soon after the oath-taking ceremony, the two leaders reached Shimla by road.
The Gandhis are expected to stay here for two-three days and there is no plan to meet any party functionary during the stay, an official told IANS.
Priyanka's five-room cottage -- with wooden frames and shingled exteriors and a sloping tiled roof -- is at a height of more than 8,000 feet in Charabra, some 15 km uphill from here.
Priyanka along with her children and mother regularly visits the cottage, just close to Wildflower Hall, on a four-bigha plus agricultural plot that was purchased in 2007.
