Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday addressed a convention of NRIs in Bahrain, where he was the chief guest at an event organised by the Global Organisation of People of India Origin (GOPIO). This was Gandhi’s first trip abroad after he took over as president of the party. A state guest, he also meet Bahrain’s Prime Minister Prince Salman bin Hamas Al-Khalifa.
Delegates of 50 countries participated in the function, a statement issued by the party said. The Congress president also had an interactive session with business leaders of Indian origin on Monday. During his last such visit, Rahul Gandhi addressed two universities in the United States – University of Berkeley and Princeton, which, in a way, redefined the politician and began what many would call a comeback for the new Congress chief.
