Rahul in his short speech clarified that he is the medium between the old members of the party and youth leaders, showing a new direction to the country’s youth.
“The difference between our party and the incumbent ruling party is that they follow the ideology of hatred while we follow the ideology of love and fraternity,” Rahul Gandhi said, while adding, “They use anger, we use love but one thing that I want to say is that this country belongs to everyone & whatever Congress will do will be for the benefit for all.” Rahul asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not doing enough for the youth and has turned his blind eye towards growing unemployment.
