Last year Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi skipped the Republic Day Celebrations and rather went to the gym to build some muscles. It was a big disappointment for me and I posted about it. You can read that post here:
Rahul Gandhi Rather Be At The Gym Than Attend Republic Day Parade
However good sense prevailed and the Congress VIce President and the party’s campaign head for the coming general election – Rahul Gandhi was there at the Republic Day Parade with sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe was this year’s guest of honour for the Republic Day Celebrations.
