After his reluctance to head Congress in the Lok Sabha, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was on Wednesday seen sitting in one of the rear benches of the Opposition.

He was seen seated in the ninth row along with party colleagues Asrar-ul Haq and Shashi Tharoor.

Those occupying the front benches on the opposition side included Leader of Congress in the House, Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, M Veerappa Moily and K H Muniyappa.

Incidentally, BJP leader Varun Gandhi was also occupying one of the rear benches on the Treasury side.
