Rahul Gandhi reveals why he is always in a white T-shirt | India News



NEW DELHI: Congress Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi, on the occasion of his 54th birthday, launched the ‘White T-shirt’ campaign and revealed why he is always seen in a white T-shirt.
To celebrate his birthday, Rahul visited Congress party headquarters in Delhi with his sister Priyanka. Hoardings and banners were placed around 10 Janpath, the residence of Congress Parliamentary Party chairperson and his mother Sonia Gandhi, as well as the party headquarters in Delhi.
Thanking well-wishers and supporters for their wishes, Rahul wrote on X, “My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your birthday wishes.I am often asked why I always wear a ‘white T-shirt’ – this T-shirt symbolises transparency, solidity and simplicity for me,” he said.
He further encouraged people to engage with the campaign by sharing how the values of transparency, solidity, and simplicity are useful in their lives. “Where and how useful are these values in your life? Use #WhiteTshirtArmy and tell me in a video. And, I will gift you a white T-shirt. Lots of love to everyone,” he added.

Born on June 19, 1970, Rahul is a five-term MP in the Lok Sabha. He first entered Indian politics in 2004 and contested his maiden election from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, a seat previously represented by his late father. He won by a margin of almost three lakh votes. On September 24, 2007, he was appointed General Secretary of the All India Congress Committee (AICC).
In September 2022, Rahul embarked on the Bharat Jodo Yatra (BJY). This journey covered 4,080 kilometers from Kanyakumari in the south to Kashmir in the north, spanning from September 7, 2022, to January 30, 2023.
Rahul followed it up in January 2024 with the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra (BJNY), a longer 6,700-kilometre journey starting from Manipur in the northeast and concluding in Mumbai on March 16, 2024. This yatra focused on comprehensive social, economic, and political justice for the people of India.
In the recent Lok Sabha polls, Rahul retained the Wayanad seat in Kerala and also won from Uttar Pradesh’s Raebareli, a traditional Congress stronghold.
