Mangaluru/Udupi, (DHNS): Congress president Rahul Gandhi savoured the local delicacy comprising 'neer dose' and fish curry prepared by families of fishermen.
The Congress leader, kicked off his third pre-election tour in the state, interacted with around 30 to 40 fisherfolk. When he enquired them about the issues plaguing them, the men and women rued about being burdened by heavy borrowings.
Doing what he usually does (catching his security personnel off guard), Rahul broke the security cordon and entered a school and shook hands with some excited students.
He then addressed the workers and leaders of Congress Seva Dal at the Rajiv Gandhi Political Institute at Yermal. The institute which was set up two years ago, has been imparting leadership skills to Seva Dal and Congress workers of the district. Rahul then got into the campaign vehicle, which took him to Padubidri and Surathkal, where he addressed corner meetings.
Rahul was greeted by massive crowds all along the Udupi-Mangaluru highway. He even hopped off the vehicle once and mingled with the over enthused Congress workers on the streets of Mulki.
At one point, Rahul's campaign vehicle came to a sudden halt as it was blocked by a cow, which was ambling along the highway, creating tense moments for the security personnel.
Rahul also had lunch at Narayana Guru Bhavan.
Rahul then made his way to the Circuit House in Mangaluru, before he continued with his road show in the city - however, this time, in an open vehicle.
After addressing a huge gathering at the Nehru Maidan, Rahul put an end to his long day by paying visits to the Kudroli Sri Gokarnanatha Kshetra temple, Our Lady of Rosary Cathedral, and Ullal Dargah. Rahul is slated to visit Sringeri, Chikkamagaluru and Hassan on Wednesday.
