Rahul returns from trip abroad
Rahul Gandhi, who skipped the farewell dinner hosted by Sonia Gandhi for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, raising politicians’ eyebrows, returned to the capital from his foreign trip on Thursday.
Rahul is likely to speak to the media along with the Congress president on Friday on the election results.
Both Rahul and Sonia have addressed the media jointly at the AICC headquarters after the drubbing of the Congress in Assembly polls a few months ago. Amid reports that the Congress plans to insulate Rahul from the blame for the party’s widely predicted defeat, party general secretary Digvijay Singh said that no Congress leader, including party vice-president, has taken any shield in any circumstance.
