Congress MP Rahul Gandhi was seen performing an Aikido move and push-ups before students of St. Joseph’s Matriculation Higher Secondary School in Mulagumoodu, Tamil Nadu on Monday.
In a video shared by the former Congress president on Instagram, Rahul was seen demonstrating the Japanese martial art before the entire school. Later on, another student of the school asked Gandhi to do push-ups and the Congress leader readily complied with the request.
Accepting the student’s challenge, Rahul Gandhi did 15 push-ups and even ended the drill with an one-arm push-up. The students responded with a loud applause and cheers.
