Rahul stopped his convoy and got down from his car to meet Dushyant, a class four student who was waving a NSUI flag at the Congress Vice President as he was leaving Central College ground after an interaction with select students.

Speaking to reporters after his brief talk with Rahul, Dushyant said "....I had come to see Rahul Gandhi; ....he asked me how are you? I replied I'm fine, how are you?"

"Then I told him- you will become Prime Minister; ....he replied to me- you will also become Prime Minister," Dushyant added.

Visibly overjoyed, Dushayant's father said ".....I have been waiting with my son for three hours to catch a glimpse of Rahul, I was not let inside....Rahul who saw my son himself called us; ....I have blessed him that he will become Prime Minister."

Speaking to reporters after interacting with Rahul Gandhi, Mithun, a student from Christ University said "....the interaction was about education, skills, employment..... He (Rahul) had kept the interaction very general, rather wanted to know more from us. His major emphasis was on women empowerment."

Stating that there was clarity in his (Rahul) thoughts, another student said "there was no specificity, it was general discussion."

"Rahul spoke about basics like education in India, how to improve it.....; most of the topics were given by students as he wanted us to talk....," said a group of students from Mount Carmel College.

Pointing out that students spoke to Rahul on topics like granting more money for R&D and quota issues, they said "....he wanted students to be part of the political system and bring about a change in it."
