Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Tuesday met rapper Sidhu Moosewala’s parents at their home in Moosa town in Punjab’s Mansa district to offer condolences.
He was accompanied by a few leaders, including Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja and Leader of Opposition in Assembly, Partap Singh Bajwa, news agency PTI reported.
Security was tightened outside Moosewala’s home ahead of Rahul’s visit, as per ANI. The Congress leader joined a string of guests to Mansa following the killing of Moosewala.
