Rahul to travel abroad with Sonia, tells BJP "I'll be back soon"
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday evening took to Twitter to say that he would be leaving the country along with his mother Sonia Gandhi for the latter's "annual medical check-up".
"Will be out of India for a few days, accompanying Sonia ji to her annual medical check up. To my friends in the BJP social media troll army: don't get too worked up...I'll be back soon," Rahul tweeted.
While Rahul Gandhi will return within a week, Sonia Gandhi will stay abroad for a longer period, reported PTI.
Whenever Rahul travels abroad, BJP leaders mock him and pass remarks deriding him. That is the reason Rahul mentioned BJP in the tweet and said "I'll be back soon".
In March, Rahul Gandhi had gone to Italy to visit his maternal grandmother.
PTI reported that some key decisions, including the allocation of ministerial portfolios in Karnataka after a Congress-JD(S) government led by HD Kumaraswamy was formed in the southern state last week, have been put on hold.
