Woman Seen with Rahul Gandhi is Portuguese Indian Student in US
KATHMANDU, (IANS) – The quest for a woman who was seen with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi during his recent outing at a nightclub in Kathmandu has triggered widespread interest in Nepal, India, as well as other parts of the world.
Nepal’s largest newspaper, Kantipur National Daily, said the woman was Portuguese with Indian origin and is believed to be pursuing higher studies in the US.
Rahul returned to New Delhi on May 6 evening from Kathmandu without making any remarks about his “controversial” visit to the renowned nightclub.
After some sections of the Indian media reported that the lady who was drinking together with Rahul was the Chinese Ambassador to Nepal, Hou Yanqi, rumors spread like wildfire.
The ruling BJP launched attacks against the Congress leader, but his party quickly fought back.
Along with two other persons, Rahul arrived in Kathmandu to attend the wedding ceremony of his old friend, Sumnima Udas.
IANS obtained the details of the Congress leader and the two other persons — Subramaniam Gandhi and Kalavati Gandhi — from Nepal’s Department of Immigration.
According to the information, Rahul was carrying an ordinary Indian passport, as well as Subramaniam Gandhi and Kalavati Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi attended the marriage ceremony of Sumnima and spent two days in all. He took a regular Vistara flight to Delhi.
