Whom did Rahul Gandhi bring with him from Goa?
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had a surprise companion with him whe he returned from a day’s trip to Goa. He carried a three-month-old Jack Russell Terrier puppy with him when he left Goa on Thursday after finishing his private visit to the state.
He has also selected another dog that will be given to him later, according to Shivani Pitre, who along with her husband Stanley Braganca owns a dog kennel in Mapusa town in North Goa.
Gandhi left Delhi for Goa on Wednesday night and returned on Thursday morning.
Pitre said a representative from Gandhi had already made inquiries about the puppy and then he himself wanted to see before taking him.
The Congress leader arrived at the shelter in Mapusa at around 9 am on Thursday on his way to Manohar International Airport, Mopa in North Goa.
Pitre said Gandhi was at the kennel for short time before he left to the airport. She said the Congress leader was humble and down to earth.
She said most of the time, Mr Gandhi was busy playing with dogs during his visit to the shelter home.
Gandhi met Congress leaders, including Goa MLAs and Goa Pradesh Congress committee president Amit Patkar, on Wednesday night in a hotel.
