Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, in Tamil Nadu ahead of the state elections, is trying to connect with locals with his fierce poll speeches, one-on-one interactions and also an apparent demonstration of his physical strength. In a video, which is widely being shared on social media, the 50-year-old ex-Congress chief is seen doing push-ups with a student. A nearly one-minute-long clip shows the Kerala MP from Wayanad taking up the "push-up challenge" while talking to a student. "Can you do push-ups. Let's try 15?" he is asked by Merolin Shenigha, a class 10 student.
