Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who surprised the porters at the Anand Vihar Railway Terminal station recently, on Thursday dropped in at the Kirti Nagar furniture market in the national Capital, interacted with carpenters at work and heard their problems besides also trying his hand at building some furniture items.
This is Rahul’s third such reaching-out exercise in the national capital in the recent past. He met fruit and vegetable vendors in Azadpur Mandi in August and more recently spoke to the porters at the Anand Vihar railway station. This visit was part of Gandhi’s reaching-out exercise ahead of the next Lok Sabha elections.
In a post on X, Rahul said, “Today I went to Asia’s largest furniture market located in Kirtinagar, Delhi and met the carpenter brothers. Apart from being hard workers, they are also amazing artists - experts at carving strength and beauty! We talked a lot, got to know a little about his skills and tried to learn a little.” “We talked a lot, got to know a little about their skills and tried to learn a bit,” the former Congress chief also said.
The Congress also shared pictures of Gandhi’s visit to the Kirti Nagar market on X, in which he is seen trying his hand with some furniture tools. “The Bharat Jodo Yatra is still on,” the party said.
The photographs of the Congress leader visiting the market was shared by Indian Youth Congress chief Srinivas B.V. on his official X handle. In his post, Srinivas said, “When mass leader Rahul Gandhi reached Asia’s largest furniture market located in Kirtinagar, Delhi.. During this time he met hard working carpenter brothers. Bharat Jodo journey continues.”
The Congress leader, in the last few months, has surprised everybody with his visits among people. Rahul Gandhi had visited Bengali Market, Jama Masjid area to have food and then visited Mukherjee Nagar area to interact with the UPSC aspirants. He had also visited Delhi University’s PG men’s hostel and shared a meal with the students and then took a truck ride from Haryana’s Murthal to Ambala to understand their pain.
Rahul had earlier met some farmers planting paddy in their fields in Haryana’s Sonipat district and interacted with some women farm labourers, whom he later invited them over to his mother’s residence.
