18 May 2004, New Delhi, India — Congress party workers stand surprised as they demonstrate in support of Sonia Gandhi to become India’s prime minister, outside the party’s headquarters in New Delhi. Italian-born Gandhi sought on May 18, 2004 to back out from leading the country in a bid to end debate over her foreign birth and bring more allies into the new government, party officials said. — Image by © Amit Bhargava/Corbis
