The political battle down south is getting keener and more colorful. The latest news which is making the rounds is rumors of alleged marriage between Rahul Gandhi and Congress Rae Bareli MLA Aditi Singh. Soon pictures of MLA Aditi Singh and Rahul Gandhi went viral on the social media and what started as a prank on some WhatsApp groups in Rae Bareli soon became the hotly debated topic of the press.

Even after a quick rebuttal by Aditi Singh, the rumor mills continued to roll. In a statement, the Rae Bareli MLA said that she is upset by the rumors and would like to clarify that Rahul Ji is like my Rakhi brother.

The rumor mongers even started sharing pictures of the two, and some also went to the extent of congratulating the young Congress leader. One of the photographs which were shared the most was Aditi Singh wearing a green sari along with Mrs. Sonia Gandhi.

Aditi Singh holds a Masters Degree in Management Studies from Duke University, USA. She returned to India to take over the baton from her illustrious father Akhilesh Singh who has been the five times MLA from Rae Bareli.

The 29-year-old MLA from Rae Bareili is also believed to be one of the closest aides of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

The Congress party workers are visibly thrilled over the news and are confident that the latest development is an opportunity to woo voters. After the embarrassing trouncing in the Lok Sabha By polls, the story will surely help to give a facelift to Rahul Gandhi’s public image.
