He addressed overseas Indians in New York with the purpose of making them a part in India’s development, Congress VP said. Taking a dig at the Narendra Modi government over job creation in India, Gandhi said, “India simply can’t give its youngsters a vision if it is unable to give them a job.” Gandhi said that Congress has the vision to solve the issue.
He said that the world is transforming and people are looking forward to India.”China is rising and we have relationship with the United States. Many countries in a violent world are looking towards India and are saying that may be India has the answer for peaceful coexistence in 21st century. So we cannot afford to lose our most powerful asset. Our most powerful asset is that 1.3 billion people lived happily, non-violently and peacefully.
