Rahul was addressing a rally in Anglo Bengali College ground here and began his speech. Shortly after he began his speech, the nearby mosque sounded the muzzein's call to prayer. On hearing the call, Rahul stopped his speech and stepped aside with his head bowed down.
As Rahul continued to bow his head in respect, Congress leaders worried if he would be able to finish his speech on time as the time for election campaign to end was 6 pm.
Once the prayer call was over, Rahul returned back to the podium only to be greeted by a huge round of applause from his supporters.
Though he continued to make attacks on the Opposition, he surely struck a chord with the locals before heading off.
