Sonia celebrates India's World Cup win with fans
Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday night came out on the street of Delhi and joined thousands of ecstatic fans in celebrating India's World Cup cricket triumph.
As soon as the Sports Utility Vehicle carrying her stopped on Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg near the busy ITO crossing at around 11pm on Saturday, a beaming Gandhi came out of it, waved the national flag, shook hands with the fans, displayed Victory and thumbs-up signs, drawing lusty cheers from the crowd around.
She told the fans that the Indian cricket team has done the country really proud by winning the Cup.
The fans responded to her by singing "India, India" and "Vande Mataram" in a rhythmic manner.
Guarded by Special Protection Group personnel, Gandhi was in the midst of the fans for about 20 minutes before she drove off towards the Delhi Gate.
As she interacted with the celebrating fans, the ITO intersection, one of the busiest areas in Delhi, was chocked with a massive traffic snarl as vehicles came to a grinding halt. But few seemed to mind that as a festive mood swept the whole area.
Kat and Deepika at war
Cat fights are inevitable in tinsel town and neither Deepika Padukone nor Katrina Kaif are strangers to them. So Ranbir’s ex and current have now embarked on a cold war of sorts as Deepika feels that Katrina has been badmouthing her Dum Maaro Dum item number all over town. She apparently labeled it ‘thanda’ and that it’s nothing compared to her Sheila ki jawani. Now we all know Deepika looks docile but isn’t one to keep quiet if she feels she is being unnecessarily targeted. Watch this space folks.
