Guwahati: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, who is touring different parts of the country in order to revive his party`s fortunes, was welcomed with kisses on his cheek and on his head during his visit to Jorhat in Assam on Wednesday.
Rahul Gandhi was interacting with a huge gathering of women, when two women came closer to him, kissed on his cheek and forehead, slightly embarrassing the young Congress leader.
Despite the unprecedented but pleasant gesture, the Gandhi scion, however, sportingly met all the women supporters who came forward to shake hands with him.
Rahul met over 600 self help groups and Congress members in Jorhat and interacted with them wholeheartedly.
While interacting with the women, the Congress vice president said that women of this country can become the prime minister, chief minister. He also said that northeastern women are more talented and brave than others.
Gandhi also advocated for 50 percent reservation for the female community in the parliament and state assemblies.
“Women have more confidence, will power, patience and talent," he said.
The Congress vice president said he would rather make women travelling in a bus safe than see India becoming a superpower.
