The massive traffic jams after rains pounded the Capital led an unlikely passenger to take the Metro on Friday night.

The passenger was none other than Rahul Gandhi.

Rahul took the Metro to reach as close as possible to his 10 Janpath home after he returned to the Capital from Raipur after a two-day visit to Chattisgarh, according to a security official.

The AICC General Secretary after landing at the IGIA took a detour and went to nearby Metro station at Dwarka to board the underground train that took him to Rajiv Chowk station, about two kms from his home.

Rahul covered a substantial part of his journey home by the Metro train.

Traffic on all arterial roads in the capital went haywire for several hours after the heavy rains and hundreds of vehicles remained stuck for varying durations in the snarls.
