Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by a Delhi-based social organisation.

The little-known outfit, the International Awakening Center, has sent a recommendation in this regard through Stein Toennesson, Director of the Peace Research Institute, Oslo, to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, it said in a statement on Monday.

In a letter to the Nobel Institute Director Geir Lundestad, the organisation called Sonia a symbol of world peace and said just like Mother Teresa, she has contributed to peace and social welfare.
