After a week of the passing away of Sheila Dikshit, Rahul Gandhi finally appears to meet her family

According to reports, Rahul Gandhi was in US on vacation when Sheila Dikshit passed away and the Congress-JDS govt in Karnataka fell

One week after senior Congress leader and former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit passed away on July 20, Congress president Rahul Gandhi finally visited the grieving family today.

After missing from action for almost two weeks, Rahul Gandhi appeared today and visited the family of Dikshit and met her son Sandeep Dikshit. ANI reported that he arrived in India yesterday morning from abroad.

The Congress president was not present when the mortal remains of former Delhi CM were kept at the AICC headquarters and also at the time of the funeral of the at the Nigambodh Ghat in Delhi, which had raised a few eyebrows. According to reports, a wreath with Rahul Gandhi’s name was kept ready at the funeral venue, but he disappointed the party workers by not being present. The entire senior leadership of Congress was present to pay their last respect to the departing leader, including Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra.

Most Congress leaders didn’t know that whereabouts of Rahul Gandhi, but according to media reports he was in the United States on a vacation. Although Rahul Gandhi has submitted his resignation letter from the post of Congress president, he still remains the party president as the CWC has not met yet to accept the resignation and decide on a replacement. He went on vacation when the Congress-JDS was going through an extreme crisis, and ultimately the HD Kumaraswamy government fell when he was in the US.
