Congress workers turned up in large numbers at 10, Janpath residence of party President Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi on Friday and extended full support to her, a day after she resigned from Lok Sabha and as Chairperson of the National Advisory Council.

Led by Congress MP Sajjan Kumar and Delhi MLA Mukesh Sharma, hundreds of party workers shouted pro-Gandhi and anti-BJP slogans urging the party chief to take back her resignation.

Congress supporters, including women and children, carrying Congress flags started gathering outside Gandhi's residence since Friday morning.
Security personnel have been deployed in large numbers to ensure the situation remains peaceful.

Soon after Gandhi resigned, party activists and leaders began arriving at her residence in large numbers, urging her to take back her resignation.
