Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Friday visited her party's state unit headquarters in Ahmedabad to take a look at the sample house under the Ghar nu Ghar scheme that the Congress has offered in the run-up to the Assembly elections.
Gandhi spent around 10 minutes there. She was accompanied by senior state Congress leaders Arjun Modhwadia and Shaktisinh Gohil.
"After examining the sample house, she suggested that the size of kitchen be increased since the scheme was for women who spend most of their time in kitchen," Modhwadia said.
The scheme offers two types of houses — one-room & kitchen and a two-rooms & kitchen — to women of homeless families.
