Rahul Gandhi

After a few hours, the new Congress president responded. Gandhi obliged by calling her up and wishing the centenarian on her birthday.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday wished a happy birthday to an admirer - a 107-year-old grandmother.

Rahul Gandhi was quick to reply and tweeted, "Dear Dipali, Please wish your attractive grandmother a very happy birthday and a merry Xmas".

Ms Sikand tweeted, "Today my grandmother turned 107". My son jokingly tried to test her general knowledge and pointing to a photo of Mr Gandhi, asked her if she knew who he was.

Surprisingly, this tweet session did not end here as Dipali again took to her Twitter account and appreciated the Rahul Gandhi's gesture. "She whispers. He's handsome!" she wrote.

The tweet was posted by a user named Dipali Sikand. The woman's granddaughter tweeted the conversation and also why her grandmother wished to meet Rahul Gandhi.

"We have tentatively suggested dates between January first and second week and three places, Hubballi-Dharwad, Chikmagaluru and Bengaluru to host the event and are waiting for a response from his office", sources said. "Rahul wished my grandmom and sent hugs on Twitter".

Gandhi has been using Twitter to take on BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the past couple of months.

The gesture of Mr. Gandhi earned him a lot of accolades on social media.
