Congress president Rahul Gandhi seems to have found a new admirer -- a 107-year-old grandmother from Bangalore who finds him "handsome" and wishes to meet him. 

Dipali Sikand, her granddaughter, had posted a tweet on Monday which said: "Today my grandmother turned 107. Her one wish. To meet Rahul Gandhi! I asked her why? She whispers ... He's handsome!"

Dipali attached a picture of her grandmother cutting her birthday cake to the tweet.

Gandhi, soon after, returned the wishes on Twitter -- and called her in the evening.
