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?"

He said the arrested person was immediately turned over to the police and military for proper disposition. Authorities said they recovered a gun, a grenade and an undisclosed sum.
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.
