Help fight forces of hatred: Rahul Gandhi's appeal to NRIs in Bahrain

"We have a solid leader in the chief minister and we will win the elections", Gandhi said during an interaction with NRIs in Bahrain that was streamed live on the internet.

Gandhi claimed that the governments failure to create jobs is resulting in "tremendous unrest" in India and this anger is visible in the streets and is rising with each passing day.

To a question on whether politics in India would get updated, just as an app is in the digital world, Gandhi said: "You give us six months".


Harichandan had given a similar call to the party leaders and workers when he took over as the OPCC president, three years back.However, a powerful section within the party had demanded restructuring of the State unit. Harichandan's leadership has since always been opposed by a major section of the State party wing, particularly nearly all of the 16-member Congress Legislature Party (CLP), who were lobbying with the party high command to nominate former PCC chief Niranjan Patnaik in Harichandan's place.

Rahul also underlined the BJP's performance in the recently concluded Gujarat elections and said that though the state is the BJP's bastion it siphoned a narrow win.

"You said there is gap".


State party chief Bhupesh Baghel will be assisted by Ram Dayal Uike and Shiv Kumar Dhahariya as working presidents.

"New investments have been lowest in 13 years". He said it was "tragic" that instead of focusing on poverty alleviation and providing jobs, the current government was busy converting the fear among jobless youths into hatred between communities. The only thing India talks about is what you are allowed to eat, who is allowed to protest and what we can say or rather what we cannot say. "Job creation in India is at an eight-year-low", Gandhi said in his address at an event organised by Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi engages with the diaspora during his visits overseas.


"Ours, more than any other vision, because of the struggle and because of our victory in India's liberation, is a vision that has strong roots in the NRI community", said he. He said jobs can be created through small and medium enterprises (SMEs). They also planned to develop sports and cricket together. "Looking forward to meeting and addressing fellow countrymen in Bahrain tomorrow", Gandhi tweeted yesterday.
