Boxer Vijender Singh shared a photograph of Rahul Gandhi commenting on the “abs” of the Congress MP during his visit to Kerala, where assembly elections will be held in April.
Mr. Gandhi took a dip in the sea as part of a campaign to support his issues with fishermen.
In the photo shared by Mr. Singh, the Congress leader is standing on a boat, his clothes wet from swimming. It was widely shared on social media.
Singh tweeted, “Completely different from a boxer. Youngest youth and leader of the people.
