Fubai, Jan 11 :Addressing Indian diaspora in Dubai, Congress President in his maiden visit to the UAE urged NRIs to help bring “India together and tackle issues of agrarian distress,unemployment” caused by GST and demonetisation brought by Narendra Modi government.
“”Without the help of the NRIs, it would be impossible for India to be where it is today. In the last century, when we stood up and fought the British, the fight was led by an NRI called Mahatma Gandhi,I want to tell you that till the day I die, my doors, my ears and my heart will always be open for you,” Gandhi said.
“Single biggest problem that we face in India today is unemployment. We need to take this head-on. We need to show the rest of the world that not only we can beat unemployment but we can also challenge China,” Rahul Gandhi said to thousands of Indians who flocked to Dubai International Cricket Stadium to listen to the views and vision of Congress President.
Every single Indian, irrespective of where they live, is responsible to bring India together once again. We have to say enough,Congress President said.
Gandhi said that while humility and tolerance for different ideas, religions and communities are the values that bring together the people of the two countries, India has faced “four-and-a-half years of intolerance”.
Gandhi emphasised the role of Indian expatriates in the country’s development. “Without the help of the NRIs, it would be impossible for India to be where it is today,” he added. “In the last century, when we stood up and fought the British, the fight was led by an NRI called Mahatma Gandhi.”
