Rahul Gandhi is on a two-week visit to the United States where he will be interacting with global thinkers and political leaders. He spoke about how complex the country is anyone who claims to understand India is a fool. He began his speech with the idea of non-violence and how it is the only way to keep humanity alive in today’s time of distress. According to him, it is the idea of non-violence that has helped the citizens of India stand together despite cultural differences.

Speaking of the country’s development, he stated that jobs need to be created in a democratic environment and the attention that is currently only being given to the top 100 companies needs to reach the small and medium size entrepreneurs who are the foundation of the country’s development.

He addressed the issue of violence on a personal note and stated that he lost his father and his grandmother due to it. He blamed the political polarisation for raising the ugly heads in the country leading to more violence. He also mentioned the newly introduced GST and demonetization and spoke about the loss and damage that occurred because of it. 

Finding a loophole in PM Modi’s working, he stated that even though our Prime Minister is a good communicator, he doesn’t interact with people he works with. This, Rahul claimed, was told to him by BJP members. 

He also spoke about Kashmir and terrorism and his statements might upset a lot of people. According to Rahul, the PM massively opened up space for the terrorists in Kashmir and the violence that is prevailing makes it quite evident.
