Sonia Gandhi was born as Edvige Antonia Albina Màino. Since 1998, she has served as President of the Indian National Congress party. Since 2004, she has served as the Chairperson of the United Progressive Alliance in the Lok Sabha. She was re-elected for the FOURTH TIME as the president of the Congress party, making her the longest-servicing president in the 125-year history of the Congress party. Her husband, Rajiv Gandhi, was assassinated in 1991 by a suicide bomber. She has served as the Chairperson of the ruling United Progressive Alliance in the Lok Sabha since 2004. In September 2010, upon being re-elected for the fourth time, she became the longest serving president in the 125-year history of the Congress party. She has also brought in discipline, order, and cohesion into the Congress party.

However, it is odd that it took her around six years for her to join politics in 1997 since her husband’s assassination – did she need the time to recover from her loss for six years, or was she studying the situation in India before deciding to join politics, or both? Look at how successful she has been thus far…
