Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday met with the Communist Party of China delegation led by Men Xiangfeng. Men Xianfeng is the member of the CPC Central Committee for a meaningful exchange of views. Gandhi took to Twitter and posted a picture of himself with the whole delegation. Along with the Congress President, former Union Cabinet Minister Anand Sharma was also present at the meeting. Meanwhile, Gandhi will next week embark on a visit to Bahrain, his first foreign trip after becoming Congress president, during which he will address a convention of NRIs and is likely to meet the country’s prime minister. According to party sources, Gandhi will be the state guest of the Kingdom of Bahrain and will address NRIs settled there on January 8. He will leave for Bahrain on January 7 and is likely to return on January 9. The NRIs settled there have invited him.
Gandhi is also likely to meet Bahrain’s Prime Minister Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and the members of the royal family, the sources said. They said that he was to also address NRIs in Dubai but that visit has been postponed. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is due to visit the UAE later this month. Party sources say Gandhi’s visit to Bahrain will be on the lines of his US trip last year. Rahul Gandhi was in Goa on New Year along with his mother Sonia Gandhi.

This will be his second trip after his US tour. Last year in September, Gandhi had gone on a 15-day-trip to the United States of America. He had interacted with students, politicians, businessmen and other leaders of the country. He had also addressed the University of California Berkeley. There was a lot of criticism from the BJP back home. Interestingly, since his visit to United States of America Gandhi has made a complete turnaround of his social media and has started taking on PM Narendra Modi.
