Congress vice-president, Rahul Gandhi is probably the most eligible bachelor in the country right now. Thus, people are genuinely interested in knowing when the right time for the Congress VC is to get hitched. But when asked about his marriage, Gandhi played safe while invoking destiny.
“Jab hogi, hogi (It will happen when it happens). I believe in destiny,” he said, replying to a question asked by Olympics medalist, Vijender Singh at a business awards meet at PHD Annual Awards for Excellence.
Gandhi has parried the question several times and he has typically been evasive. But this time, he was cornered by the champion boxer. The boxer had two questions and Gandhi chose to answer the latter one first.
“It’s a very old question,” he grinned when Singh asked, “People always say when will Rahul Bhaiyya get married…everybody is waiting for it. It will be quite something if you become Prime Minister and then marry.”
Vijender’s first question was what Gandhi would do for sports if he became PM. “I have rarely seen a lawmaker doing any sports,” he said.
“I do exercise, swimming, am a black belt in aikido. But I don’t talk about it publicly. I do sports one hour every day. Though I admit I haven’t done so in the past three-four months.” However, he admitted that the previous government led by his party had shortcomings “towards its closing day.” The new Congress government “would be a much more decentralised government.
