Rahul’s visit abroad comes amidst the raging farmers agitation and once again gives fodder to critics to question his lack of seriousness in politics. The party though has put up brave front to defend his absence

“Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has left for abroad for a short personal visit and will be away for a few days,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said . His visit comes shortly after top party leaders met earlier this month, including those who have called for sweeping organizational changes over the poor electoral performance.

“Rahul Gandhi has gone to see his grandmother. Is it wrong? Everybody has the right to undertake personal visits. BJP is indulging in low-level politics. They are targeting Rahul Gandhi because they want to target only one leader,” Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal said.
