Bhuria said the party would give Rs. 1,000 per month to the boy, who had told Rahul that he wanted to become a doctor.
Senior Congress leader Sajid Ali has offered a job to his father, a school drop-out, as a peon at a college run by Ali.
Kaushal, a class fifth student, sells newspapers. On April 25, when Rahul was heading for Raja Bhoj airport in a car, Kaushal approached him and requested to buy a newspaper.
Rahul took the newspaper and handed him a Rs. 1,000 note, but the boy returned it, saying he had no change, and he was offering the copy for free.
The Congress vice president then had a brief chat with him.
