Rahul Gandhi: On the eve of the founding of the Congress, Rahul leaves for a visit abroad | India News


NEW DELHI: One day before the party’s Founding Day, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi set out on a visit abroad.
AICC spokesman Randeep Surjewala, quoted by PTI, said: “Rahul Gandhi has gone abroad for a short personal visit and will be away for a few days.” While the spokesperson did not elaborate, the rumor was that Rahul had left for Milan in Italy. His grandmother lives in Milan and he has also been to the city before.
This visit caused a great stir on social networks that sought to emphasize the statement that Rahul “did not take politics seriously”, with the point that he had gone to celebrate the New Year. Congress has started the internal election process to elect its new president and there is pressure on Rahul to regain power.
On Sunday morning, Rahul tweeted about the farmers’ protest, urging them not to stop until their demands were met.
What added to the drama and sparked speculation is that Monday marks the 136th Congress Foundation Day, an occasion when top party leaders gather at Akbar Road headquarters to raise the party flag. If Rahul is not present, it will be seen who would do the honors. One question is whether Priyanka Gandhi Vadra could intervene. The problem arises when AICC director Sonia Gandhi has been avoiding public appearances during the pandemic due to health concerns.
Congress has planned a national campaign for Foundation Day. In addition to instructions to state and district units to carry out imaginative programs such as “rally de tiranga”, the social media department will organize the “selfie with Tiranga” campaign in which all party leaders have been invited to participate. .
