She said she believes that the schemes announced by Rahul Gandhi will help the people and sought blessings of the people for her brother.

Congress state president D K Shivakumar said, “Today is a special day and I cut short my trip and returned from Mangaluru. I had tried to bring her into the party several times, but I couldn’t, now Rahul Gandhi’s programmes have succeeded in bringing her to the party”
