Rahul Gandhi visits kin of late KC(M) leader K.M Mani

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday paid a visit to the bereaved family members of Kerala Congress (M) leader and former state minister K.M Mani, who died last week.

Rahul after addressing election campaign meetings in Pathanapuram and Pathanamthitta, spent around 10 minutes with the family members of the late leader of Kerala Congress (M) at his residence in Pala.

"He (Mani) was a towering leader, voice of people of Kerala. So it is an honour for me to come here and pay my respects," Rahul told reporters after meeting Mani's family members.

He said Mani, as a senior leader with tremendous experience, was "somebody I would listen to and appreciate."
