Rahul Gandhi’s new avatar

Congress former President Rahul Gandhi arrived in the UK on Wednesday to deliver a lecture at Cambridge University. The 52-year-old seems to have had a makeover ahead of his UK trip. He had trimmed the now-famous beard which he grew out during the whole of the Bharat Jodo Yatra and even got a haircut.


Rahul Gandhi, a Visiting Fellow of the Cambridge Judge Business School (Cambridge JBS), will speak on the subject “Learning to Listen in the 21st Century”. The Wayanad MP is on a week-long tour of England and will interact with the Indian diaspora in London on March 5. He will also meet the members of the Indian Overseas Congress (IOC) in London. The IOC is the overseas wing of the Congress party.

Twitter Reactions

Images of the Congress MP with cropped hair and a styled beard were shared by many on social media, with some using the hashtag #NewLook. Some have even compared his new look to a Coconut.
