An overwhelming incident came in light when newly elected Congress President Rahul Gandhi took to his Twitter account and sent a 'big hug' to a 107-year-old woman and also wished her Merry Christmas.
An adorable tweet started doing rounds on Twitter in which a Twitter user said, 'Today my grandmother turned 107. Her one wish. To meet @OfficeOfRG Rahul Gandhi ! I asked her why? She whispers....He's handsome !'
The tweet was posted by a user named Dipali Sikand.
Check out the tweet:
After seeing this post, Gandhi sent his virtual 'hug' to the old woman and also wished her happy birthday and conveyed his regards too.
Dear Dipali, Please wish your beautiful grandmother a very happy birthday and a merry Xmas. Please also give her a big hug from me. Best, Rahul. https://t.co/lcp8NUa8Di— Office of RG (@OfficeOfRG) December 25, 2017
Surprisingly, this tweet session did not end here as Dipali again took to her Twitter account and appreciated the Rahul Gandhi's gesture. She also thanked all who sent wishes to her Nani.

It's surely a Christmas gift from Rahul's side to the old woman, probably, it's for the first time that Rahul had a one-on-one conversation on Twitter with someone.
On 16 December, the Gandhi scion took over as Congress president by succeeding his mother Sonia Gandhi. The 47-year-old was officially declared party president in a ceremony held at the party's 24 Akbar Road headquarters here.
