Anger building up against Modi government: Rahul Gandhi

Anger building up against Modi government: Rahul Gandhi

The Gandhi scion thanked the Indian diaspora for their contribution both in the U.S. and in the country back home and called them "backbone of India". "Divisive politics is going on and it has to be fought", Gandhi said. "So we can not afford to lose our most powerful asset", said the Congress leader. There are forces in India that are dividing the country.

"Some people View India as a Piece of Land, But I view India as a set of Idea, we have many religions, many languages, every one of them living happily that is due to idea of Congress", Gandhi said.

Gandhi repeated what he had said a day earlier at Princeton University - that the central question facing India is how it will create jobs for the millions of young people entering the job market every year. His confident takes on issues concerning India, especially jobs, economy as well as the idea of religious tolerance have won him many admirers.

Rahul travelled to various places during his stay in the USA and met people from various walks of life. Our most powerful asset is that 1.3 billion people lived happily, non-violently and peacefully.

The Congress vice-president, without naming any person or party, attacked the Narendra Modi government yet again over the persistent problem of unemployment in the country.

He said the single biggest thing that people asked him during his incumbent visit to the United States was: "What happened to the tolerance that prevailed in India?"

"The divisive politics was ruining India's reputation overseas and NRIs in the tradition of the great NRIs before them, should stand up to those dividing India now".

He said the freedom fighters and people who sought to transform India had stood for the truth.

Pitroda, who has taken over the NRI mission of the Congress as the chairman of its Overseas Department, organised Rahul Gandhi's U.S. visit.

Gandhi called the original Congress movement in India an NRI movement, citing the examples of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Chandrasekhar Azad, Sardar Vallabhai Patel and BR Ambedkar, who were all non-resident Indians at one point in time.

"This is the single biggest challenge in front of our country and it can be solved by building unified approach". And, this challenge is going to be addressed by building a unified approach by bringing people together."India simply can not give its youngsters a vision if it is unable to give them a job". I want to invite you to work with Congress to discuss the vision for going forward.
