At a time when Chennai and other coastal areas of south India are devastated by the floods, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has landed himself in a controversy. While touring rain-affected parts of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry with Gandhi ,V Narayanasamy, former Union Minister, was seen holding a pair of slippers as Rahul took off his shoes to walk through a flooded area. Narayanswamy was the Minister of state with the Prime Minister’s Office in the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government The 68-year-old Congress veteran then placed them for 45-year-old Rahul, who wore them without any ado. When TIMES NOW confronted him about the incident, Narayanasamy said that he had merely offered his own shoes. “As a courtesy I offered my chappals as Rahul Gandhi removed his shoes to walk barefoot in the water,” said Narayanasamy. “I didn’t want him to walk barefoot,” he added. The video went viral on social media sites and netizens took on the Congress scion.
