Gandhi’s international trip comes merely a few days after he met President Ram Nath Kovind along with two different opposition delegations asking for the revocation of the three recently passed farm legislations.

Previously, the 50-year-old had missed the debates in the parliament over the agricultural laws along with Sonia Gandhi citing the latter’s health issues. The Gandhi scion along with his sister Priyanka Vadra had hit the streets in the national capital a some days ago, joining the ongoing farmers’ protests.

The ex-Amethi MP had called Prime Minister Narendra Modi “an incompetent man” back then and even quipped, “Democracy…. which country are you talking about? There is no democracy in India. It is in your imagination but not in reality.
