"Win Rae Bareli Before...": Gary Kasparov On Rahul Gandhi's Love For Chess

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's favourite chess player Garry Kasparov appears to have taken note of his fondness for the game and has some advice for him -- "first win Rae Bareli before challenging for the top".

The Russian legend, who retired from competitive chess in 2005, was responding to a post by a user on X on Friday.

Recently, the Congress posted a video of Mr Gandhi playing chess on his mobile phone while on the Lok Sabha election campaign trail. In the video, Mr Gandhi named Mr Kasparov as his favourite chess player and drew parallels between the game and politics.

In the video, Mr Gandhi described himself as the best chess player among politicians.

"Feel so relieved that @Kasparov63 and @vishy64theking retired early and didn't have to face the greatest chess genius of our times," said the X user, in a cheeky comment on Mr Gandhi.
