New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday (February 28, 2023) arrived in the UK to kick off his week-long tour with an address at the University of Cambridge. The Wayanad MP, who is a Visiting Fellow of the Cambridge Judge Business School (Cambridge JBS), is scheduled to deliver a student-only lecture at the university on the subject of ‘Learning to Listen in the 21st Century’ on Wednesday. Ahead of his tour, during which he will also interact with the Indian diaspora in London, Rahul Gandhi was seen in a new look.
In the pictures now going viral on social media, Gandhi is seen ditching his long beard — which was one of the talking points during his Bharat Jodo Yatra — after over five months.

Several people had praised the former Congress chief’s “coming-of-age” look after the end of his 145-day-long Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.
Meanwhile, Gandhi will hold ‘closed-door sessions’ on ‘Big Data and Democracy’ and ‘India-China relations’ with Professor Shruti Kapila, the Director of Studies at the university’s Corpus Christi College.
