Bullseye! Garland thrown at Rahul Gandhi, lands neatly around his neck; video goes viral

TUMKUR: On a crowded street in Tumkur, Congress President Rahul Gandhi held a roadshow on Wednesday as part of the campaigning for the upcoming Karnataka elections. During the road show, as he was waving to his supporters gathered around, a garland thrown by a supporter landed around Rahul's neck, taking him and the others on the jeep by surprise. 

Rahul's security officials quickly took out the garland from around his neck due to security reasons. But the video of the cleanly aimed shot has since gone viral. 

Several people referred to it as an auspicious sign coming ahead of the elections:

Some even showed concern after stating that he could get hurt in such incidents.

The incident took place on April 4 during the second day of his visit to Karnataka. During the day, he held public meetings at Holalkere and Magadi, visited the Siddaganga Mutt in Tumkuru and held meetings with workers of unorganised sectors and traders.

Rahul visited the Siddaganga Mutt here where he was accompanied by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and other senior Congress leaders. Rahul also met the pontiff of the mutt Shivakumara Swami to seek his blessings ahead of the upcoming elections in the state.
