Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on October 25 shared a video of his meeting with a tribal farmer in Kerala on social media and hailed tribals.

The former Congress president shared a video of his meeting with Ramettan during his recent visit to the State.

 

In the video, Mr. Ramettan praises former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi for taking steps for the welfare of tribals. Mr. Gandhi tells Mr. Ramettan that his grandmother was supportive of tribals as they were the original owners of India and had traditional wisdom.

“Speaking with Ramettan was informative and evoked memories of my grandmother Indira ji,” Mr. Gandhi tweeted with the video.

“Ramettan is testimony to what my grandmother Indira ji taught me when I was a child,” he said.

Mr. Gandhi was on a three-day visit to his Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency recently.
