Rahul Gandhi’s new avatar sans ‘Marxian beard’ takes internet by storm

The Congress parliamentarian is currently in London to deliver a lecture at Cambridge University.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has taken the internet by storm yet again, this time by appearing in a new look sans his previously trending long hair and beard.

Rahul famously let his hair and beard grow during the Congress party's Bharat Jodo Yatra which concluded over a month ago after covering 12 states and two Union Territories in 150 days.

He is currently in London to deliver a lecture at Cambridge University.

The Congress leader's long hair and beard had become a major talking point during the Yatra. In an interview with the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Gandhi, responding to a question about his beard, said: "I had decided not to cut it for the whole march. Now I have to decide whether to keep it or not..."

Rahul will speak Wednesday as a visiting fellow of Cambridge Judge, the varsity's business school, on the topic "Learning to Listen in the 21st Century".

On February 16, he shared a tweet regarding the address and noted: "Looking forward to visiting my alma mater @cambridge_uni and delivering a lecture at @CambridgeJBS. Happy to engage with some of the brightest minds in various domains, including geopolitics, international relations, big data, and democracy."
