NEW DELHI: The Congress on Tuesday announced that party vice president Rahul Gandhi is on a personal trip to Aspen, U.S. to attend a conference and asserted that he will continue to lead the party's Bihar campaign as also in the rest of the country.

Rahul’s visit, interestingly coincides with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s, who will also be in the U.S from Thursday on a six-day visit.

“Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi is travelling to Aspen, U.S on a short visit to attend a conference. The conference is expected to be attended by global leaders from various domains, both from government and private sectors,” party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.

“We reject all rumours stating otherwise,” he added.

Rahul had earlier gone abroad on a 56-day ‘sabbatical’ when the budget session of Parliament had commenced, leading to rumors and speculation across political parties.
