Raghavendra Rajkumar's Opinion
"Rahul Gandhi knew about the stroke that I had suffered from. He advised me to continue the treatment. He also said he would pray to God for the betterment of my health. Afterwards, Rahul Gandhi posed for a photo with me and my two brothers," said Raghavendra Rajkumar.
He also added, "We are very happy that Rahul Gandhi paid us a visit to enquire about our well-being. This visit was purely for personal reasons and this has got nothing to do with political purposes."
