NEW DELHI: Sonia Gandhi today congratulated L K Advani on his 50th wedding anniversary, saying it was also a "special day" for her as it was on this day 47 years ago that she got married to Rajiv Gandhi.
"On the auspicious occasion of your 50th wedding anniversary, I send my warm felicitations to you and Mrs Kamala Advani. Over half-a-century you have enjoyed a close companionship, giving strength and support to each other through all life's ups and downs and that is indeed a great blessing!" Gandhi said in a letter to the BJP veteran.
The Congress President wished the two "many more years together" in good health and happiness.
"February 25 is also a special day for me -- the day Rajiv and I got married, and this year would have been our 47th wedding anniversary," she said.
