Rajendra Vyas, the owner of a Rajasthan-based daily, met with an accident at New Delhi’s Humayun Road but he got a most unusual helping hand.
It was none other than Rahul Gandhi who was passing by after attending a public function at Talkotra Stadium yesterday. He stopped and took him to AIIMS

Mr. Gandhi is seen dabbing his forehead with a handkerchief in a video which has been doing the round in the social media.
An amused and shocked journalist coyly asked Rahul to use the handkerchief again “Sir, please apply the handkerchief once again. I will use the video for my work.” Rahul laughed but obliged.
Later he told media that, not only Rahul dropped him in the AIIMS but also left an official with him who was there for four hours and after that the journalist was dropped home.
Here's what journalist Rajendra Vyas has to say about Rahul Gandhi's help that saved him when he needed first aid after his accident earlier today.

Following that the Congress leader Ajay Maken tweeted:
Another such incident was caught on camera earlier this year when Mr Gandhi was visiting Odisha. A journalist, who was covering the visit, lost his balance and fell when media persons swarmed around the Congress chief as he emerged from the Bhubaneshwar airport.

In a cellphone video shot from the spot, the journalist is seen tumbling off the footpath onto the road, landing on his head. Mr Gandhi immediately rushed forward and helped him up.
