Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is engaged and the news of the engagement was confirmed by Robert Vadra. Speaking exclusively to Firstpost, Vadra said that he was extremely happy for Rahul and wished him a happy married life ahead.

"Yes its true. All speculation over his marriage will finally end. Rahulji will get married later this year and I am serious," he said.

Sources say that the Gandhi family has been tight lipped about the development and only close family and friends were part of the engagement ceremony.

Senior Congress leaders say that the move was aimed at keeping Rahul Gandhi away from politics, however General Secretary Digvijay Singh rubbished it.

None of the Congress party workers our reporter spoke to were aware of the engagement and initially dismissed it as rumor, till Robert Vadra spilled the beans.

Check out the exclusive Firstpost video where Robert Vadra confirms the engagement.
