Rahul Gandhi goes on ‘short trip’ abroad. A day after Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi celebrated his 46th birthday, tweeted on Monday saying he is going abroad for a “few days”, but he did not disclose the destination.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi’s 56-day mysterious tour last year had created much controversy in political circles with the ruling BJP making his absence in the midst of Budget session of Parliament an issue. Party leaders have time and again said that Gandhi, who was made the party Vice President in January 2013 at the Jaipur ‘Chintan Shivir,’ will be elevated soon.

Rahul Gandhi is leaving at a time the Congress is looking at bleaker times, with a bad showing in recent state elections and rebellions in its units, from Karnataka to Haryana. The party has defended his tour saying he has every right to take a short break.
