Congress leader Rahul Gandhi shared a photograph of him hugging his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today to extend Raksha Bandhan wishes to his Twitter family of 15.4 million followers.
He captioned the photo in Hindi as well as English, extending Rakhi greetings.
"Wishing every one a happy #RakshaBandhan," the MP from Kerala's Wayanad wrote.
Rahul Gandhi's tweet was liked over 18,000 times in just 40 minutes.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, 48, also had a wish for brother Rahul on the occasion along with a photo.
"I have learned love, truth and patience from my brother while living with him through happiness and sorrow. I am proud to have such a brother," she tweeted in Hindi and followed it with a Raksha Bandhan wish for everyone.
हर सुख-दुख में साथ रहते हुए मैंने अपने भाई से प्रेम, सत्य और धैर्य का साथ सीखा है। मुझे ऐसा भाई मिलने पर गर्व है।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) August 3, 2020

The siblings often wish each on social media on various occasions and share photos.
Last year, Ms Vadra shared a collage of photos of them, wishing Mr Gandhi, 50, on Bhai Dooj. She had shared photos with her brother on Raksha Bandhan last year too.
Raksha Bandhan wishes have poured in on social media from eminent personalities. Sisters tie rakhis on their brothers' wrists on this day, symbolically protecting them, and receive a gift from them in return.
