Shimla, May 2 (IANS) Congress president Sonia Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Vadra made a quick trip to Shimla to inspect a piece of land where the latter plans to build a country house, officials said Friday. They arrived quietly by helicopter at Wildflower Hall, 15 km from here, Thursday and spent a few hours at the one-acre plot that Priyanka had bought last year.

The state government had granted special permission to Priyanka to buy land here as only domicile residents are allowed to purchase land in rural Himachal Pradesh.

The visit was a purely private one and no details were provided. Police confirmed the visit only after the two flew back to New Delhi Friday.

Both stayed at the Oberoi’s Wildflower hall five star hotel.
