Our fascination with VIPs is so deep-rooted in our senses that we cannot even imagine a top politician helping out fellow citizens. This was evident when pictures of Congress President Rahul Gandhi helping out fellow passengers with luggage on Delhi-Guwahati flight went viral on Tuesday. Rahul, who is on a two-day visit to poll-bound Meghalaya, was on the flight to Guwahati en route Shillong when he was spotted helping the common passengers. While some of the passengers clicked the pictures of Mr. Gandhi lifting luggage, others vied for a selfie with the Amethi MP. They later posted the pictures on social media, praising the opposition leader for his gesture. It is only our fascination for the deep-rotted VIP culture that we find an act such as this something extraordinary. It is something we all have done while travelling, whether on a flight, a train or a bus. Also readBJP’s ‘soot-boot’ jibe at Rahul Gandhi, party claims Congress chief wore Rs 70,000 jacket to Meghalaya event Rahul did nothing out of ordinary but acted as any common man would. But it is our belief that a person with such strong political and family background do not act the way he did. We are used to powerful politicians flaunting their power, and not their humility and that says a lot about the VIP culture. Meanwhile, Mr. Gandhi reached Meghalaya yesterday to officially launch the Assembly campaign. He also addressed the Meghalaya PCC Executive. In the evening, he attended a party-organised concert to reach out to young voters. Dressed in blue denim trousers and a black jacket, Gandhi also spoke for five minutes at the ‘Festival of Peace’ concert as he listened to the musical bands enthralling the 4,000-plus crowd.His jacket also created a stir after the BJP claimed that the outfit cost US$995 (Rs 63,000).

Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient govt in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us,” BJP Meghalaya tweeted.Meghalaya goes to polls on February 27. The Congress has been in power in the northeastern state for nearly 15 years.
