United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi, along with Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil, arrived in Jammu on Friday on a day's visit.


Immediately after her arrival, Sonia left for an aerial survey of the snow-hit areas of Doda and Ramban districts in Jammu region and Anantnag and Kulgam districts.


Sonia is expected to meet senior party leaders in Srinagar and in Jammu.
