  • Congress President Rahul Gandhi at a function organised by GOPIO in Bahrain today

In his first address to NRIs outside India after taking over as Congress president, Gandhi, Gandhi said, "I am here to tell you what you mean to your country, you are important, to tell you that there is a serious problem at home, and to tell you are part of the solution". "Gujarat was BJP's fortress, but it escaped (a defeat) by the skin of its teeth", Gandhi said. "We may be fighting BJP but our focus is to provide a vision for India. And we can not do that at home without our largest skill base on the planet - all you people in this room", said the Congress President. You will see a dramatic change in Congress party.

Mr. Gandhi said revamping the education system and making India a global hub of healthcare were the next key priorities. "We are going to change us and present before you a new Congress", he said replying to questions. Gandhi said many in the Indian diaspora have lost their hard earned money because of arbitrary decisions like demonetisation, which dealt a crippling blow to the Indian economy.

Gandhi said 30,000 new youngsters entered the job market in India every day. "Instead of uniting people of all religions and communities to face the challenge to create jobs, the government is busy converting the fear being generated in jobless youth into hatred between communities".

Stressing that the Congress stands for bridging gaps, Mr. Gandhi hit out at the Modi government.

"Activists and journalists are threatened, they are shot dead for expressing their views. There should not be silence, government should make its position clear", he said.

On his vision for the party, Gandhi said he admits his mistakes as well as those of the Congress. He said jobs can be created through small and medium enterprises (SMEs). He said a Congress government would ensure the passage of the women's reservation Bill to give representation to women in Parliament and state legislatures.
