‘Ab jaldi karni padegi,’ Rahul replies to query on marriage at Rae Bareli rally | India News

LUCKNOW: Speaking at a public meeting in Rae Bareli for the first time after filing his nomination, Rahul Gandhi, who’s 54, was led into a banter – with his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra joining in – for not having decided on his marriage yet.
At the end of his speech, someone from the crowd asked him about his plans for marriage. Rahul first ignored the question and called Priyanka to the front of the dais.
Putting his hand on her shoulders and fondly touching her face, Rahul expressed his appreciation for her efforts in the Rae Bareli campaign.”I am touring different parts of the country in the election and my sister is spending time here, a big thanks to her for this,” he said.
Taking advantage of the moment, Priyanka Gandhi joined the stranger and asked her brother to answer.
The Congress leader asked what the question was. “Shaadi kab karoge (When will you marry),” somebody from the crowd asked again.
Ab jaldi hi karni padegi (Now, I will have to get married soon),” said Rahul dodging the reply with a smile.
The lighter moment took place during a public meeting in Harchandpur area of Rae Bareli on Monday afternoon.
While Priyanka Gandhi is camping in the constituency to steer her brother’s poll campaign, Rahul made his first appearance here after filing nomination papers.
