It’s a an exciting moment to be present and see celebrities and politicians participate in any event or function. But it’s an absolutely different thing to meet the favorite celebrity and click a selfie with him/her. It definitely was one such moment for this young girl, who broke all barriers to meet and greet Rahul Gandhi, her favorite politician. She even got to click a selfie with her dream hero. On being made public on social media, the video did not take much time to go viral.
As we know, Rahul Gandhi is in Gujarat campaigning for his party right for the Assembly Elections, which is just a month away. Yesterday, he was in Bharuch for the third leg of the ‘Navsarjan Yatra’, where he was greeted by a huge crowd.
Although Gandhi was has been travelling in a high security bus, during the road show he was greeting and waving to thousands of people who had gathered to have a glimpse of him from an open roof matador. The police was facing a hard time in keeping the supporters away.
In all this crowding, jostling and pushing, a college girl managed to climb the Congress Vice President’s matador and gift a small bouquet to him. As if it was not enough, she also clicked some selfies with him, which the VP gladly obliged to. However, it is still unsure as to how the girl managed to get past a tight security cordon and climb on to the matador. This was a matter of concern, query and ridicule on Twitter for many.

Ahem! These guys think, at the end of the day, her vote will go to BJP. What do you think?

One selfie and a chunk of Twitter goes against RaGa for being an “employment agent” of China. Well?
RaGa is the Chief Employment agent of China.

Meanwhile, there were some people who lauded Rahul for being people’s leader. Do you agree?
Youth needs you, youth loves you #Rahul. India need youth movement against hatred and to spread love.

This is people’s leader. Not keeping 50 feet distance from his own countrymen.

This guy seems to have a genuine concern. We can’t help but agree with it! Rajiv Gandhi’s death was surely a tragic incident!
As much as we love making fun of him, he must be careful. I got a fright seeing the girl and the bouquet.
Reminded me of Rajiv Gandhi’s…
