Rahul meets Bhutan PM

NEW DELHI: Congress President Rahul Gandhi Saturday met Bhutan Prime Minister Lotay Tshering here and the two discussed the political situation in the region.

The meeting took place at a local hotel.

“I had an excellent meeting today with the Prime Minister of Bhutan, Dr Lotay Tshering. We discussed the political situation in the region and other matters of common interest. I look forward to continuing our dialogue in the future,” Gandhi said on Twitter.
