Rahul Gandhi in Kerala

Rahul Gandhi takes part in Youth Congress padyatra in Kerala
Thiruvananthapuram: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi attended 'Yuva Kerala Yatra' in Kerala’s Kayamkulam on Monday. The rally is being organised by state's Youth Congress. Rahul Gandhi arrived at the venue in the afternoon and travelled with the yare for a short distance by foot.

Rahul Gandhi arrived at Kochi airport in the afternoon and soon proceeded to Alappuzha to join the Kerala Yatra organised by the Youth Congress in the state. The Congress Vice-President, who came to participate in the ‘Yuva Kerala Yatra’ campaign, led by state Youth Congress president Dean Kuriakose, dropped in at a Primary health the centre located between Kochi and Alappuzha and spent about half-an-hour there. At the Community health Centre at Thuravoor, Rahul Gandhi interacted with the locals there. When he reached there, polio distribution was in progress and he immediately joined the campaign by giving polio drops to a baby. The Congress leader also had discussions with the ASHA volunteers there.

The Congress leader also lavished praise on the universal public health care system in Kerala, terming it as ‘one of the best in the country’. "Your health care system is reputed in India and outside. What is the secret behind it?," he asked hospital authorities. Rahul Gandhi also lauded the services rendered by nurses from the state not only in different parts of India but also in many foreign countries.
From the primary health Centre he proceeded to Kayamkulam and joined the yatra there. Huge number of Congress workers was assembled there to greet their favourite leader. Several top Congress leaders in the state were also accompanied him. Rahul Gandhi travelled on foot with the Yatra for some distance and later took an open jeep. He also jumped to the crowd to interact with the locals. A big crowd of local people also were present on both sides of the road to have a glimpse of the young Congress leader.

Rahul Gandhi was received at Nedumbassery airport near Kochi by Union Minister Vayalar Ravi, State Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala and other party leaders.
The yatra was flagged off last month and will cover the distance between Kasargod and Thiruvananthapuram. The 'Yuva Kerala Yatra' highlighting slogans of secularism and non-violent society, was inaugurated by KPCC president and state Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala.
