On the occasion of Teachers’ Day, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday hailed a girl from Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur who reportedly travelled to school by rowing a boat when her house was inundated in floods. He also shared a screenshot of a media report about the girl from Gorakhpur district, Sandhya, who is seen rowing a boat in flood waters to reach her school.

“This girl did not lose her courage despite the difficult situation, failed administration and an uncertain future. Sandhya’s courage teaches us a lot,” he tweeted, using the hashtag ‘Teacher’sDay’
