We will win 2019 electoral battle and bring India together again: Rahul Gandhi in UAE

Rahul Gandhi

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday addressed Indian diaspora in Dubai. During his address, he assured the Indians working there that his heart and doors are always open for them.

Exuberating confidence, Gandhi said that the Congress is going to win the electoral battle in 2019 and will bring India together again.

Here are the highlights from his address:

  • When I drive through UAE, I see your energy, blood and sweat. You have helped build this nation, and I feel proud that you have played your part with dignity, togetherness and tolerance
  • When I met Your Highness Vice President of UAE, I experienced humility. Great nations are built with that kind of humility
  • The values that bring together the people of UAE and India are humility and tolerance; tolerance for different ideas, religions and communities. I’m sad to say that back home it is four and a half years of intolerance
  • For hundreds of years, people of India are coming to Dubai and UAE. You have achieved great things here and you are going to achieve greater things
  • 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
  • White Revolution, Telecom Revolution by Sam Pitroda, and Liberalisation of Indian Economy by Dr. Manmohan Singh were all done by Non-Resident Indians who returned to India
  • I want a commitment from you to stand together with us and solve problems back in India
  • 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
  • Second main problem is the farmers’ crisis. Today, our farmers are in deep trouble. They are struggling and cannot see the future. We need to carry out a second green revolution

  • Sam Pitroda, P. Chidamabaram and many others are helping us create the 2019 Manifesto. It will contain a plan for the future of India. It is going to be the expression of farmers, youth, women and NRI communities
  • You have mentioned to me that you have a desire to be represented in Indian politics. We are going to make sure that your voice is heard in your country
  • We can never run a country like India believing that only one idea is correct and all other are wrong. Today, my beloved country India is being divided for political reasons
  • Every single Indian, irrespective of where they live, is responsible to bring India together once again. We have to say enough:
  • It is impossible for our great country to be strong if it is divided. You have shown us how to deal with problems
  • I want to tell you that till the day I die, my doors, my ears and my heart will always be open for you
  • India is not simply a geographical idea. You come to Dubai, you carry the idea of India in your heart
  • You are a part of a great idea that includes tolerance, brotherhood. You have a lot to show the rest of the world
  • We see a lot of violence around the world. India has the blueprint to provide the answer for this; non-violence is embedded within us
  • Mahatma Gandhi picked up the idea of non-violence from every great religion where it is clearly written that violence will not help you achieve anything
  • We are facing an electoral battle in 2019. I want to tell you with confidence that we are going to win that battle and we are going to bring India together again
