Former president of Indian National Congress (INC) Sonia Gandhi is leading a relaxed life after passing on her responsibilities as the president of India’s oldest political party to her son Rahul Gandhi. The 71-year-old veteran, who led Congress for 19 years, was photographed smiling and happily riding a bicycle in Goa. The picture was tweeted by Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh, who father Vilasrao Deshmukh was a former chief minister and a well-known Congress leader.

A day before Rahul Gandhi took charge as the president of Indian National Congress on December 16, 2017, Sonia had told the reporters that it was her time to retire. Sonia is reportedly staying the Leela Hotel in South Goa and is accompanied by her close friends.
