23 days after he left for a Bangkok vacation, Rahul Gandhi leaves for another foreign tour, this time Indonesia: Reports

The Congress party had then defended their former president's visit to Bangkok saying that it was a personal visit and people should refrain from commenting on his individual life. 

According to a source quoted by the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS), former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has embarked upon yet another foreign visit. The Gandhi scion is reportedly travelling to Indonesia.

Earlier too, on 6th October 2019, Rahul Gandhi had gone to Bangkok before the October 21 assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana. Doubts were being raised about Rahul’s suspicious visits to foreign countries and his leadership questioned for leaving the party in the lurch amidst such crucial assembly elections. Nonetheless, the party failed to perform satisfactorily in the assembly elections with the BJP once again consolidating and forming government in both the states.

The Congress party had then defended their former president’s visit to Bangkok saying that it was a personal visit and people should refrain from commenting on his individual life.  “The person should not be mixed with the public life of an individual. We need to entitle everybody an eternal sense of liberty and privacy. After all, this is the basic and outlining principle of progressive and liberal democracy,” Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.

The opposition, on the other hand, has often targeted Rahul for his unaccounted escapades, claiming that shunning responsibilities is par for the course for the Wayanad MP. The BJP leaders have frequently questioned Rahul Gandhi’s foreign visits, with Amit Shah stirring up a furore asking why Rahul Gandhi does not take SPG cover with him on his foreign trips and what is he hiding from the world.
