Bhopal: Congress President Rahul Gandhi who began the first day of his two-day tour of Madhya Pradesh by offering prayers at Ujjain’s Mahakaleshwar temple on Monday, ended the day by offering ice cream to a boy.

The video of Gandhi scion offering ice cream to the child was posted on Twitter and Instagram by the Congress and has garnered a lot of attention. The video shows Rahul Gandhi, along with other senior leaders waiting at the ice cream parlour. However, when Rahul is served ice cream, he asks the boy, who Gandhi eventually notices, if he wants some ice cream.

Mr. Gandhi offers the first bite of his ice cream to the kid, which the child eats happily. The caption, on Instagram, reads, “And guess who became the kid’s favourite person today.”

Rahul Gandhi is campaigning in the state, ahead of upcoming assembly elections. On Monday, the Gandhi scion, clad in a ‘dhoti’ performed ‘puja’ at the Mahakaleshwar temple, which is one of the 12 ‘Jyotirlingas’ (special shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva) in the country.
