Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the party’s general secretary and in charge of Eastern UP Priyanka Gandhi on Saturday found the oddest of places to run into each other.

The brother and sister met up at the Kanpur airport while on their way to different locations across the country in their electoral campaign.

Sharing a video soon after the meeting on his Facebook page, Rahul Gandhi wrote, “Was nice meeting Priyanka at Kanpur Airport! We’re headed to different meetings in UP.”

The video shows the two of them standing with their arms across each other’s shoulders talking to a camera.

He says, “Let me tell you what it means to be a good brother. I am doing massive long flights and I am flying in a little helicopter, squeezed up, and my sister who is doing short flights, is going in a big helicopter. But I love her.”

Priyanka rebuts saying, “That is not true.”
