Chennai: Taking local police and security
guards by surprise, AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi today
made a surprise visit here to take part in a party function.

Making an unannounced visit, Gandhi arrived here by a
scheduled private flight at 1:50 pm to take part in a youth
Congress training session on the city outskirts as part of his
efforts to strengthen the party at the grassroots, officials
said.

Even the airport police were not informed of the visit,
airport officials said.

Without any formal reception at the airport, Gandhi got
into a bulletproof car, kept ready inside the airport and left
for Thangavel College of Engineering at Thuraipakkam with
TNCC president K V Thangkabalu.

During the training session, he asked the party cadre to
work hard and reach out to the people so that more youths come
to the organisation fold, party sources said.

He said posts would be suitably given to those who work
responsibly for the party`s growth in their respective region.

After interacting with the office bearers, the Congress
leader left for Delhi.

During September last, Gandhi had made a three-day visit
to the state as part of Congress` efforts to strengthen the
party.
