Exactly a month after former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother and current Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi gave a cold shoulder to Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray and skipping attending his swearing in ceremony despite the reluctant ‘Maha Vikas Aghadi’ coalition, Rahul Gandhi today attended Jharkhand’s Hemant Soren’s swearing in ceremony.
