Madhya Pradesh Congress has "adopted" the 10-year-old newspaper hawker who gave a newspaper for free to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, because he had no change. On Saturday, state Congress chief Kantilal Bhuria met Kaushal Shakya and his father Dulichand Shakya at the party office here and announced, after felicitating the boy, that the Congress was "adopting" him. 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 as a peon at a college. Kaushal, a class 5 student, sells newspapers. On April 25, when Rahul was heading for Raja Bhoj airport, Kaushal had requested him to buy a newspaper.
