Several internet users praised Rahul Gandhi for his “great gesture”.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi resumed its journey on Sunday from Kerala’s Haripad. Several photos and videos from the yatra, which started shortly after 6:30am, surfaced on social media. While in some Mr Gandhi was seen greeting people waiting on both sides of the road, in others he was seen taking a break from the march and enjoying tea from a hotel along the route. 

In one of the videos from the 11th day of the yatra, the Congress leader was also seen helping a little girl with her footwear. The video was shared on Twitter by Netta D’Souza, the Acting President of the Mahila Congress. “Simplicity and love. Both are needed to keep the country united,” Ms D’Souza wrote in the caption in Hindi.

In the clip, Mr Gandhi was seen walking alongside other party workers and leaders. Moments later, he was then seen abruptly stopping and bending down to help a little girl walking beside him with her shoe.
