NEW DELHI: The mother of 2012 gang-rape victim has revealed how the Congress vice president, Rahul Gandhi, was her son’s guardian angel.
Asha Devi has thanked Rahul for his effort after the stress and heartbreak of the last five years threatened to consume them.
She told Mail Today, “Aman (name changed) is a pilot now because of Rahul Gandhi,”
Post his sister’s tragic death, Aman, who was in Class 12, was pushed in a state of depression.
‘Rahul Gandhi was the one who counselled him and motivated him to achieve something good in life to support the family. After learning that he wanted to join the defence forces, Rahul asked him to pursue a pilot’s training course after completion of school,’ Asha said.
She added, “While shifting to Rae Bareli, Aman made up his mind that he will prepare for the Indian Army’s recruitment examination. But after joining the course, he found it difficult. He never got time to pursue parallel studies.”
Asha said that when he was studying, Rahul used to ‘talk to him over the phone and taught him to adopt a ‘never quit’ attitude.’
“Even after he completed his studies, he called him to find out about his training-cum-job,” she added.
