Rahul Gandhi Speaks

Southasia - - Briefing -

Dur­ing his first ever ad­dress to busi­ness lead­ers af­ter tak­ing of­fice as Vice Pres­i­dent of the In­dian National Congress, Rahul Gandhi has called for en­trepreneurs to re­vive In­dia’s econ­omy. How­ever, crit­ics said that Gandhi did not fo­cus on the means that will bring this eco­nomic change. Rahul, tipped by In­dia’s po­lit­i­cal stal­warts as the next prime min­is­ter, views that the slow­down in the ser­vices and man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor has re­sulted in In­dia’s eco­nomic down­fall. For­eign in­vestors are cau­tious of en­ter­ing into the In­dian mar­ket when the govern­ment de­layed key re­forms and could not con­trol ris­ing in­fla­tion.

Dur­ing his speech, Gandhi stressed that In­dia will achieve eco­nomic growth when it pro­vides ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture to all and em­pow­ers the com­mon peo­ple. The VP of the In­dian National Congress be­lieves that mil­lions of In­di­ans are pas­sion­ate to work for the coun­try’s progress and that the in­cred­i­ble move­ment of peo­ple and ideas will define In­dia in the 21st cen­tury. Prais­ing the busi­ness com­mu­nity, Gandhi urged them to make use of In­dia’s abun­dant work force. He said that the hu­man re­source is re­spon­si­ble to pro­vide In­dia with an in­fra­struc­ture that con­nects vil­lages to cities and even­tu­ally the coun­try with the rest of the world.
