Gandhi namesake harassed by phone calls

NEW DELHI, March 17 (UPI) -- A namesake of Indian Congress Party President Sonia Gandhi says she receives dozens of phone calls a day from wannabe politicians.

With elections around the corner, the phone at 30-year-old Sonia Gandhi's home in Indian capital never stops ringing. People call from far off places seeking time to meet the nation's opposition leader.

"It is for her (Congress president)," Gandhi told the Hindustan Times as she answered a call.

Sonia, wife of a dairy merchant, took her husband's name after her marriage in 1996.

"I was a lot happier being Sonia Arora," she says.
