JAIPUR: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi made an unannounced visit to the Pink City on Thursday, the eve of the wedding of Rajasthan Governor Shailendra Kumar Singh’s son Shashank Singh. The visit remained a private affair, just like the wedding which is intended to be a “very private” affair with limited invitees.

Shashank is the elder of the Governor’s two sons. The bride is Maitheli, daughter of a Parekh couple from Gujarat. Shashank, an MBA from Harvard, is employed in Mumbai while Maitheli works with an art objects’ auction house there. “Rahul is here as a friend,” said a Raj Bhawan insider. The Governor’s younger son Kanishk is closely associated with Mr. Rahul Gandhi’s activities in UP.
