Claiming India was being divided for political reasons and that there has been intolerance for the last five years, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday called upon the Indian diaspora across the globe to commit themselves towards solving the country’s biggest crises -- unemployment and agrarian distress.
Gandhi in a veiled attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi said a country like India cannot be run with “arrogance” and “believing that only one idea was supreme”.
Addressing a gathering of Indian expatriates at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Gandhi asserted that Congress would come to power at the Centre. He reaching out to the diaspora, saying “Your voices will be deeply embedded” in the Congress’ manifesto for the 2019 general election.
“Tolerance means listening to people, embracing different ideas, different religions, different communities. But is tolerance possible without humility, is tolerance possible with arrogance...never,” said Gandhi referring to the Modi-led BJP government which came to power in May 2014.
“Can you run a country like India believing that only one idea is supreme and none others? Today India is being divided for political reasons, for political benefits,” said Gandhi.
