Rahul Gandhi, it seems, has competition. The Congress general secretary is not the only one to get red roses from women admirers. HRD Minister Kapil Sibal, who has won a fair amount of fan following for his reforms in education, gets them too!
With Diwali close by, Sibal's residence at 19, Teen Murti Marg, is flooded with people wishing him and a majority of them are women, including teachers. And it is not only sweets that are coming his way, he is being showered with flowers, especially red roses.
On Saturday, Rahul Gandhi had come to Sibal's house over the issue of students elections in Uttar Pradesh. There was a surge of people, especially women, holding red roses and bouquets. 'Sibal may just give Rahul Gandhi competition,' quipped a by-stander.
