Varanasi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi arrived to a rousing welcome here on Tuesday, with party workers lining up both sides of the road from the airport and raising slogans hailing her. After reaching the Babarpur airport, she spent some time in the VIP lounge and then drove off for her scheduled road show. On way, as her cavalcade emerged out of the airport, hundreds of enthusiastic Congress workers showered petals on her and asked her to lead the party to power in Uttar Pradesh. She waved back to the supporters and, at times, greeted them with folded hands from inside her bulletproof vehicle. Security personnel had a tough time keeping the crowds at bay.
