5th gen of Nehru-Gandhi visits Parliament
5th Generation of Nehru-Gandhi Visits Parliament. Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s grandson and Priyanka Gandhi’s son Rehan Vadra visited the Parliament on Wednesday and witnessed the Lok Sabha proceedings while sitting in the visitor’s gallery.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s grandson and Priyanka Gandhi’s son Rehan Vadra visited the Parliament on Wednesday and witnessed the Lok Sabha proceedings while sitting in the visitor’s gallery. Mahanaryaman, the son of Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, too visited the Parliament, along with his mother Priyadarshini Raje.
Rehan ended his tour at the Congress Parliamentary Party office (ironically, room number 44 on the ground floor of Parliament, the same number as Congress MPs in this Lok Sabha) before leaving home.
In a party dominated for decades by members of the Nehru-Gandhi family, a visit like this sets off quite a buzz, until senior Congressmen reminded others that this was just a 13-year-old school boy's inquisitive visit to the Parliament and not an early announcement of a succession plan.
Accompanied by two others, slightly older than him, Vadra listened to Question Hour. Ministers Prakash Javadekar and Smriti Irani fielded questions on climate change and education, respectively, and left. Sources close to the family said Rehan, a student of Doon School in Uttarakhand and a keen shooter, wanted to visit the Lok Sabha in his summer vacations which are to end shortly.
When asked whether his visit was part of a school project, Vadra replied that it wasn't, but that he had liked whatever he had seen so far of the Parliament.
