Call me Rahul, not sir: Rahul Gandhi wows
Call me Rahul, not sir: Rahul Gandhi wows Chennai college girls. Video goes viral


CHENNAI. How do you win over a gathering of college girls? Ask Rahul. Not Rahul Sir. Just Rahul. That's how this Gandhi boy wants people to call him. "Can you call me Rahul instead of Sir? Makes me more comfortable," is how the Indian National Congress President answered a college student when she began her question with "Sir". The crowd responded with a roar of approval.

Rahul Gandhi was at Stella Maris College in Chennai as part of his awareness campaign for the upcoming elections. The Congress President let go of his trademark white kurta-pyjama and chose a grey T-shirt and a pair of denims for his address at the girls' college. Once in Stella Maris, Rahul Gandhi got on the stage to take questions from the girls seated below.

"Hi Sir," as the girl began her question, Rahul interrupted him. "Can you call me Rahul instead of Sir? Makes me more comfortable," said Gandhi to hoots and cheers from his audience. After a nervous giggle, Azra, the Fine Arts student, continued with her question... with extra emphasis on "Rahul".

Rahul Gandhi won the students over, as he did social media. The video, shared by news agency ANI, was retweeted more than 800 times and liked by more than 2,500 people at the time of filing this.(UPDATED ON MARCH 13TH, 2019)
