Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader, was captured on film partying with pals in a nightclub. The undated film is thought to have been recorded at Kathmandu’s LOD- Lords of Drinks nightclub.
Rahul is now in Nepal for his journalist buddy Sumnima Udas’ wedding. According to reports, the event took place yesterday at the Marriott Hotel in Kathmandu.
On Monday afternoon, Rahul was spotted at the Tribhuvan International Airport with three other people.
It’s worth noting that Rahul left the country when Congress president Sonia Gandhi met with poll strategist Prashant Kishor to discuss his probable entry into the party.
BJP leaders attack Rahul
The BJP has slammed Rahul’s international trip as violence has erupted in Congress-ruled Rajasthan’s Jodhpur.
“When Mumbai was under attack, Rahul Gandhi was in a nightclub. He’s in a nightclub at a moment when his party is going off the rails. He is dependable. Surprisingly, since the Congress rejected to outsource its presidency, hit jobs against their Prime Ministerial candidate began almost immediately…” The BJP’s IT Cell leader, Amit Malviya, tweeted.
Rahul Gandhi was at a nightclub when Mumbai was under seize. He is at a nightclub at a time when his party is exploding. He is consistent.

“Vacation, party, holiday, pleasure trip, private foreign visit, and so on are increasingly commonplace in the country…” Kiren Rijiju, the Union Law Minister, sent out a tweet.
“Rajasthan is on fire, but Rahul Gandhi wants to party rather than lead his own party.” He tweets about India’s numerous crises, but he likes bars to ‘Bharat ke log.’ Rahul is a ‘party time’ politician, not just a part-time politician.

“The lie of Rahul Gandhi has been exposed. For the Nehru family, this is a familial tradition “Vishvas Sarang, the Minister of Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal Gas Tragedy Relief and Rehabilitation, said.
Surjewala responds to BJP
Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala defended Rahul Gandhi, claiming that he travelled to a friendly nation, Nepal, to attend a friend’s private wedding.
“…having relatives and friends, as well as attending weddings, is a part of our culture and civilization. Attending a wedding party is still not considered a crime in this nation. Perhaps after today, the BJP will declare it illegal to attend a wedding and to have friends “he stated
The Congress leader is expected to stay in Kathmandu for five days and may travel to Rara or Mustang. It is unknown whether he will meet with Nepalese political leaders.
