Rahul Gandhi going abroad for a short visit?


New Delhi : Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi announced on Monday that he is going abroad for a few days, without revealing where he is off to. The official Twitter handle of the Congress vice-president posted on Monday, a day after he turned 46. 

"Traveling out of the country for a few days on a short visit. Thanks again to all who met & wished me y'day, truly grateful for your affection!", he said on Twitter. There were speculations that he would be elevated to the post of party chief on the day of his birthday, but nothing was announced by the party.

Rahul had also taken a rest for a few weeks last year after a string of electoral defeats. His absence had created quite a furore and there were a lot of speculations about his future plans.
