Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday returned from his trip to Europe and will hold a meeting with Congress leaders tomorrow to take stock of the developments during his absence.

Gandhi, whose foreign trips in the past have led to intense speculation, had announced his trip to Europe on Twitter on December 28.

“I will be travelling to Europe for a few days. A very Happy New Year to everyone,” he had said.

Congress sources said Gandhi returned early this morning and will meet with party leaders tomorrow.

Gandhi had been out of the country during New Year on some occasions in the past as well.

His last two trips abroad were much talked about. His around two-month sabbatical after an AICC session in February last year to reflect upon the party’s debacle in Delhi elections and deliberate on a future course for Congress had led to BJP taking potshots at him.

There was a political controversy even over his September visit to Aspen, US to attend a conference.

When the BJP raised questions about the Congress claim of Gandhi attending the conference in Aspen, the Congress vice president’s office had uploaded photographs of the same on Twitter to counter the attack.

            Your insecurities in your own beloved leader are so clear, the news report is about RG coming back and you are calling PM Modi names. Hence proven yatha raja tatha Praja, just like Rahul you are saying things which have no relevance to the report!!

                      whose money was spent for this trip. If it is Congress money what fid Congress gain ? If it is personal, source of funds. Another issue, in nation's interest where did he go ? Were Security personnel aware of this ? If he had gone on a holiday for celebration of New Year is his concern for India genuine ? In that case he should not be dictating terms to Parliament.

                          Pappu is back. He will start his rhetoric, without using his brain. Now he is a British but he claims to be Inian when it suits him.

                            It is fairly evident the PDP has seen the terrible consequences as a result of partnership with BJP. The Central Government is entirely run by the PMO, and not by the parliament. The Parliament, where all matters should be discussed, hardly knows what is happening. Because, the crouching, dokhla-eating Gujjubhai, cannot speak. The crouching, dokhla-eating Gujjubhai, only knows how to do the drama-queen acting for the invited cheering supporters (mostly Gujjus), but he cannot speak. So the Central Government is run by the PMO, not by the Parliament. PDP has seen the result of Delhi elections, the result of Bihar elections, the result of Gujarat elections, and the result of even Madhya Pradesh elections. Most voters have deserted the BJP and the drama-queen, crouching, dokhla-eating Gujjubhai. So PDP's future can only be with the Congress party. Congress party is sincere. No false promises like those of the crouching, dokhla-eating Gujjubhai.

                                        As if he needs permission from stupid sanghis. They can't stop the chayawalla from coming out of the tax payer paid flights. If at all the chayawalla can spend time on administration than the time spend on selfies, India will progress. Last 15 months Indian exports are on a free fall, Indian ruppee is on a free fall against dollar, modi and jaitely haven't got a clue to what to do with Indian economy.
