  • “When accountability leaves corruption takes its place”

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday zeroed in on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government for creating a divide in the nation, instead of dealing with the real issues that matter.

8 admitted that he also "made mistakes" and promised to present a new party, whose focus will be to give a "new vision" to India.

Gandhi will also have an interactive session with business leaders of Indian origin.

Fans and well-wishers thronged the airport, breaching the security, to greet and take selfies on their mobile phones with the newly elected Congress chief.

During the Bahrain trip, Rahul Gandhi would also be addressing political heads and the Indian-origin business community, discussing the state of the Indian economy, as former Congress MP Madhu Goud Yashki, reported that the NRIs are anxious about the "slowdown in the Indian economy". "Now help us rebuild India", added Rahul. "Today, 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", said Gandhi.

British Ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, refuted the Iranian allegations and said that no one is forcing Iran onto their agenda.

Rahul Gandhi targeted both Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for the slowdown in investment, bank credit growth, job creation and agricultural growth.

The Congress party, he said is "the most tested ideology" that "brings people together and does not create any division". 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. "He is angry with what government of India is doing", said Rahul. Gandhi said there was also a need to reform India's education system and his party also has a strategy to improve healthcare. People are killed due to their religious beliefs, Dalits are beaten into submission, judges investigating sensitive cases die under mysterious circumstances.

"I am here to tell you what you mean to our country, that you're important, to tell you there is a serious problem at home, to tell you that you're part of the solution and that I am here to build a bridge between wherever you are in the world and home", he said in his address to the Global Organisation of People of India Origin.

He also said that he was in Bahrain for a objective and that is "to tell you what you mean to your country".
