Rahul's reply

Rahul Gandhi finally answered why he has been walking in a T-shirt in chilly winter. He said the media kept asking him if he felt cold but never asked the same question to a farmer, a labourer, or even poor children.

“They (journalists) keep asking me how I do not feel cold,” he said, adding, “but they do not ask the farmer, the worker, poor children, this question." He also talked about those who could not afford essentials such as warm clothes.

“I have walked 2,800 km, but I believe that is not a big deal. Farmers walk so much every day; as do farm labourers, factory workers – all of India, in fact,” he said, while addressing a gathering near the Red Fort.
