The garland incident during the Congress president Rahul Gandhi 's roadshow in Tumkur on Wednesday is going viral - Watch Video
What a shot! Garland lands perfectly on Rahul Gandhi’s neck. The indication of good times?
A garland hurled by Congress supporter lands exactly around Rahul Gandhi ’s neck is the talk of the town. This marvel took place during a roadshow in Karnataka.
The incident during the Congress president’s roadshow in Tumkur on Wednesday is turning into a mass phenomenon. Rahul Gandhi was campaigning for his party ahead of the Karnataka Assembly elections.
It was caught on camera and the clip is getting some serious social media response.
In the video, Gandhi is standing on top of his bus waving at the crowd while conducting his roadshow. Suddenly, a hand appears throwing a garland at him. The garland lands exactly around his neck. He is completely taken by surprise for a second, and then quickly removes it.
Police are investigating whether the incident was a security breach or not.
Gandhi was in Tumkur to visit the Lingayat seminary Siddhaganga Mutt. Meanwhile, he also seeks the blessings of Sri Shivakumara Swami, the highly revered seer of the community.
On the fifth lap of his two-day election tour in Karnataka, Gandhi visited the Mutt and met the 111-year-old seer along with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and KPCC President G Parameshwara.
His visit comes against the backdrop of the Siddaramaiah government’s move to recommend to the Centre grant of religious minority status to Lingayats and Veerashaiva Lingayats, who are politically powerful.
Not sure whether it was an ominous signal from unknown powers of just impeccable timing. Watch the viral video here:
