Delhi Congress observes Rahul Gandhi’s birthday as ‘Sewa Diwas’ 

Birthday greetings flowed in for Rahul Gandhi, Congress leader and member of Parliament from Kerala’s Wayanad, as the veteran leader turned 51 on Saturday (June 19). Much like last year, the grand old party has planned to observe Rahul Gandhi’s birthday as ‘Sewa Diwas’ this time as well, distributing essential items, including face masks, medicines kits, and cooked meals free-of-cost among the people in the national capital who have faced the brunt of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.

Birthday wishes for Rahul Gadhi on this day ranged across the political spectrum. While Congress leaders and party’s various regional units took to their officials Twitter handles to post greetings for their leader, members of the opposing BJP camp were also seen reciprocating the sentiment as well. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan wished Rahul Gandhi on his birthday and prayed for his long life. Union Minister of State Babul Supriyo, too, extended a birthday greeting to the Congress leader and wished for his good health.


Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and the leader of opposition in the assembly, Tejashwi Yadav, also extended their respective birthday greeting of Rahul Gadhi.

Delhi Congress workers, under the leadership of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Chaudhary Anil Kumar, will distribute mask, medicine kits, cooked meals, water, and other items to people in the 272 wards of the municipal corporations of the national capital, the organization said in a statement.

The Congress leaders will also visit the families of those who have lost their near and dear ones to the deadly coronavirus, and extend support to them, said Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief Chaudhary Anil Kumar.
