Rahul Gandhi t-shirt rower in Delhi winter

Rahul Gandhi said he considers the Bharatiya Janata Party as his “guru” (teacher) as the BJP shows him the roadmap and teaches him “what not to do”.

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday faced the “T-shirt” controversy after he appeared to lead the Bharat Jodo Yatra wearing only a white T-shirt and trousers in the bitter cold after marching to the Delhi border on December 24.

Speaking to the media, the Congress MP gave a funny response when asked about his choice of winter wool as the mercury hovered between 7 and 4 degrees Celsius in the national capital last week. In a light-hearted conversation with reporters, the Wayanad MP said he was thinking of wearing a sweater once he started feeling cold.

Addressing a press conference, Rahul Gandhi said, “Why is there so much fuss over T-shirts? I don’t wear sweaters because I don’t fear winter. I’m thinking of wearing a sweater when I start getting cold.”

Not only have social media users and others raised the T-shirt issue, but several videos have allegedly shown his mother and former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi questioning him about his winter clothes.

Rahul Gandhi said he considers the Bharatiya Janata Party as his “guru” (teacher) as the BJP shows him the roadmap and teaches him “what not to do”.

Addressing a press conference, the Wayanad MP said, “I think they (BJP) should attack us aggressively, it will help the Congress party understand their ideology. I consider them (BJP) as my guru, they are guiding me and training me what not to do.

Talking about the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which entered New Delhi on December 24 before taking a nine-day break, he said, “When I started this, I took it as a normal Yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Gradually we realized that this yatra has sounds and emotions.”

“The doors of Bharat Jodo Yatra are open to all, we will not stop anyone from joining us. Akhilesh ji, Mayawati ji and others want “Mohabbat ka Hindustan”, he said in an open invitation to other opposition parties ahead of the 2024 general elections.

Rahul Gandhi’s public relations campaign, Bharat Jodo Yatra, came amid a surge in Covid-19 cases in neighboring countries, with the Center issuing cautionary notes.

The Yatra, which started from Kanyakumari on September 7, has so far covered the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Maharashtra and Haryana.

The Congress claims that this is the longest walk by any Indian politician in the history of India.
Through the yatra, Rahul Gandhi aims to mobilize party workers and rally the general public against the BJP’s “divisive politics in the country”.
