New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party Vice President Rahul Gandhi Monday flagged off relief material for the victims of flash floods in Uttarakhand.

Besides the Gandhis, leaders present on the occasion included Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Finance Minister P Chidambaram, Road Transport Minister Oscar Fernandes and, political secretary to Congress President Ahmed Patel, AICC General Secretaries Ambika Soni and Ajay Maken.

This was Rahul Gandhi's first appearance since the natural calamity struck Uttarkhand as he was abroad.
