Robert took to Facebook and penned an emptional note for brother0in-law Rahul Gandhi. In his emotional note, Vadra said that the youth look upto Rahul for direction.
"There is so much to learn from you, Rahul. The Indian populace, which comprises 65 per cent of the young - (under 45 years), looks up to you and other young leaders for direction. You have shown tremendous strength of character and your decision to build the grassroots connect has been applauded by one and all," Robert said in his Facebook post.

Gandhi, who is now a Member of Parliament (MP) from Wayanad in Kerala, became the Congress president in 2017. He offered to step down from his post at the Congress Working Committe (CWC) meeting on May 25, taking moral responsibility for the Congress party's abysmal performance in the 17th Lok Sabha Elections.
