As Rahul Gandhi started the second day of his Bharat Jodo Yatra, he was joined by the team behind “Village Cooking Channel”, a popular YouTube channel which has around 1.79 crore subscribers. Rahul had tried his hand at cooking with these YouTubers during a trip to Tamil Nadu in January 2021. On the menu was mushroom biryani and curd onion salad, with Gandhi lending a hand in the preparation before sitting down to eat.

The polyglot of Jairam Ramesh was in broad daylight on Friday. Ahead of a press conference addressed by Rahul Gandhi, Ramesh addressed the restless press, which jostled for seats and camera positions, in English, Hindi, Tamil and Kannada. One person, one question, he told the assembled reporters before smiling and referring to the one person, one job rule in Congress.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah and his Cabinet colleague Smriti Irani, who holds the Women and Child Welfare portfolio, attacked Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday for his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” in progress.

At a BJP event in Jodhpur, Shah said the Congress leader who once said ‘India is not a nation’ is now ready to ‘unite’ the country by wearing a t-shirt “of foreign manufacture”, while advising the latter to read the history of India. Irani, at a celebratory event near Bengaluru, said Rahul marched with people chanting “anti-Indian” slogans, an apparent reference to Congress leader Kanhaiya Kumar.

“Rahul Baba embarked on Bharat Jodo Yatra, wearing a foreign shirt…a foreign t-shirt. My friends, I want to remind him of what he said in Parliament — ‘Bharat is not a nation’. Arrey Rahul Baba, in which book did you read this? It is this nation for which thousands have sacrificed their heads and colored the earth red. It is this nation where thousands of sisters have committed themselves “jauhar” for honor and for the country. But that doesn’t seem like a country to you? Shah said, while addressing officials at the Rajasthan BJP booth in Jodhpur.
