Rahul Gandhi turns 39, Congress celebrates
New Delhi, Jun 19: Congress party's youth icon Rahul Gandhi turned 39 on Friday, Jun 19. Rahul will be celebrating his birthday in London reportedly with his close pals.
Reports suggest that the celebration will be a private dinner, most likely with friends from his Cambridge days and some old family friends. Rahul had apparently asked his partymen not to have huge celebrations and to visit Dalits and slums instead and distribute sweets.
However, Congress workers gathered in large numbers at the party headquarters and state offices to wish their beloved lead all the best. Congress party has decided to celebrate Rahul Gandhi's birthday as 'Samrasta Divas' and hold the 'sahbhoj'. Rahul, who emerged as the key leader of Congress after the Lok Sabha polls 2009, will be joined by Sonia Gandhi in London.
London is the favourite destination of PM in the making. Born on June 19, 1970, he is a Member of Parliament from Amethi constituency in Uttar Pradesh.
