Congress leader Rahul Gandhi after completing Bharat Jodo Yatra has come into a new 'Avtar' as he has trimmed his hair and beard for the first time since his yatra.
During the Bharat Jodo Yatra for months, he had grown a beard, which was being discussed in the whole country.
Often people used to ask questions about his beard, however, he adopted the new look as he reached London on Tuesday for a week's tour that includes the student-only lecture at the University of Cambridge, his alma mater.
Sharing more pictures of the Congress leader, one twitterati wrote: “#RahulGandhi’s new look ahead of Cambridge lecture. He cleans up good!”, while another one said: “The Marxian beard is history.”
