Going viral! Photos of Rahul Gandhi practicing Japanese martial art 'Aikido'


Brand new avatar of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is being shared extensively over the internet.

Rahul Gandhi had revealed his passion for sports and told Vijender Singh that he does sports for an hours everyday and also holds a black belt in Aikido - a modern Japanese martial art.

Vijender Singh and Rahul Gandhi had an interesting conversation at an event in New Delhi last week. He, however, answered the second question asked by Vijender that why no politician share their pictures playing sports to promote physical activities in youths.

"I am a black belt in Aikido - have you heard of it?"

EPS for Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (FOXA) Expected At $0.50
In current trading day Service Corporation International (SCI ) stock confirmed the flow of 0.62% with the final price of $35.62. It dived, as 42 investors sold FOX shares while 120 reduced holdings. 153 funds opened positions while 670 raised stakes.

Gandhi posted a video of his dog - Pidi - crediting the canine with his recent rise in popularity on the social media site, a sarcastic comeback to detractors who have suggested that someone else has been tweeting for the Congress vice president. I am a black belt in Aikido. But I don't talk about it publicly. Vijender had then remarked that people were used to seeing Rahul go toe-to-toe with political rivals in the Parliament, but if the Congress leader put out a video on his sporting activities, it would inspire others.

The 47-year-old Gandhi scion can be seen showing off his technique in Aikido hand holds and wrist grabs.

The tweet seems aimed at dispelling doubts regarding Rahul's prowess in the Japanese martial art and show that his commitment to sports was no mere lip-service.

He also stated that he takes out an hour every day to indulge in sports, however, due to his tight schedule, was not able to engage in it for the past few months.
