Amidst huge security, Congress National Secretary Rahul Gandhi visits Mumbai city. Details with this report. Amongst a huge crowd of party workers and onlookers, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi arrived in the city. Rahul arrived here amid tight security following Sena’s threat to greet him with black flags. Rahul Gandhi called upon the youth of Mumbai to focus on the inclusive development of India and stay away from divisive politics. He said and I quote “If you want to make a change, join politics and the Congress party. Some people are trying to divert your attention from real issues, but you have to stay focused,” he said addressing 1,100 college students at Bhaidas Hall in suburban Ville Parle. He said that congress stands for a united India. There are two kinds of leaders in the country, one who divide and rule and the other who collaborate and take everyone along towards the objective of a united India and move forward. Discarding security considerations as well as a waiting helicopter, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hopped into a local train to travel from Andheri to Dadar, much to the delight of his co-passengers in the second class compartment. Maximising the massive public response to his sudden Mumbai trip in the wake of Shiv Sena threats to “keep off Maharashtra”, the Congress general secretary made a last minute change in his itinerary to travel from Vile Parle in western suburbs to his second engagement at Ghatkopar in the eastern suburbs.
