After his arrival in Dubai today on a two-day tour, the Congress President, Rahul Gandhi, had an interactive session with Indian blue-collared workers at around 12.15 pm. He was greeted enthusiastically by the workers who were clamouring to get up-close with the Congress President.
He was greeted warmly by the Jabel Ali labour colony workers who demonstrated love and warmth towards the leader, amidst high security. The former Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy was also present at the venue as was Indian Overseas Congress President, Sam Pitroda.
Gandh addressed the workers and said that he realised that the men are far away from their homeland and families and working hard to finance the requirements back home. He reiterated support and encouragement for the workers and said that his party would be a constant source of sustenance for the workers. This meeting was in the wake of a breakfast meet with the businesss community in Dubai, that was hosted by Sunny Varkey in honor of Gandhi.
