Meira Kumar represents values that bind us as a nation, says Rahul
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was not present when Meira Kumar filed her nomination for Presidential polls but tweeted his praise for her from abroad.
 
"Against the ideology of divisiveness. She represents the values that bind us as a nation and people. Proud to have Meira Kumarji as our candidate," he tweeted.
 
Gandhi has left for Italy a fortnight ago to be part of his ailing grandmother amid crucial discussion among Opposition parties on presidential elections. On June 13 he tweeted, "will be travelling to meet my grandmother & family for a few days. Looking forward to spending some time with them!"
