During the rally, amidst addressing the crowd, Rahul Gandhi paused to acknowledge the sweltering temperatures. In an attempt to cool down, he poured a bottle of water over his head, a move that quickly caught the attention of attendees and subsequently the internet. The clip of this moment, shared across various social media platforms, has been widely circulated and commented on, with many netizens finding humor in the spontaneity of the act.

Accompanying this light-hearted moment, Gandhi reiterated the INDIA Bloc's commitment to deposit Rs 8,500 to every unemployed youth's bank account each month if voted into power.

"They (BJP) made you unemployed, 30 lakh government jobs will be handed over to you once INDIA Bloc comes to power. In the bank accounts of unemployed youth...," said Rahul Gandhi as he took a sip of water from a bottle and soon poured it over his head, adding, "Garmi hai kaafi."

"In the bank accounts of unemployed youth," the Congress leader continued, "every month Rs 8,500 and Rs 1 lakh a year will be deposited Khata-Khat, Khata-Khat, Khata-Khat."

The viral video has added an unexpected element to the rally, drawing a mix of reactions from the public. "Oh thank god he didn't tear his T-shirt," quipped one user on X.

Another added, "Bro increased the temperature more."

People want better quality of life - ghar, paani, ration, better jobs for their kids, execution which only Modi can do!"

"Whenever my mood is off, I watch this Adharniya Pappubhai to cheer myself," remarked a fourth.
