Besides, All India Mahila Congress, Nagma, DK Shivakumar, Revanth Reddy, Srinivasan BV and others expressed their warmest greetings to Rahul Gandhi on his 49th birthday today.
The eldest of two children born to Rajiv Gandhi, who later became the Prime Minister of India, and Italian-born Sonia Gandhi, who later became President of Indian National Congress, Rahul Gandhi took over as President of the Indian National Congress from his mother Sonia Gandhi on 16 December 2017.
Notably, Gandhi was in the forefront of Congress' campaign at the recent Lok Sabha elections that saw BJP win with a thumping majority. He repeatedly took on PM Modi over allegations of a tainted Rafael deal and even coined the slogan "Chowkidar chor hai." However, despite Gandhi's efforts, Congress managed to win only 52 seats, making a marginal improvement from their 44 in 2014.
