Rahul Gandhi decided to kickstart his day-long AP Tour with the visit to Tirumala by foot. He flew to the Renigunta Airport on Friday morning and drove to Alipiri. Upon offering prayers at Sri Lakshminarayana Swamy Temple, Congress Chief reached the hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara Swamy on foot.
Notably, Rahul Gandhi is the first person from the Gandhi-clan to climb Tirumala by foot. What's even more special is the fact that his trek to the hill shrine was completed in a record time. Mr.Gandhi was able to reach Tirumala in just One-and-a-half Hour.
AP CM Chandrababu Naidu was able to climb Tirumala hills in 2 hours 40 minutes. While YS Jaganmohan Reddy and Pawan Kalyan took around 3 hours 30 minutes each, Chiranjeevi managed to cover the distance in 7 hours 30 minutes with long breaks in between.
Rahul Gandhi proved he is much fitter than any of the Topbrass Politicians in Andhra Pradesh by completing 12 kms walk in just 1 hour 30 minutes. Isn't this feat enough to draw ample attention?
