Rahul Gandhi in Delhi: Only Congress can change the system

Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi encouraged Congress supporters on Sunday, at a big rally at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan, defending the UPA government and exhorting the youth to join politics. He also used the opportunity to launch a blistering attack on the opposition for halting the welfare policies of the central government.
Rahul Gandhi vowed to fight to modernise the country through reforms that he said would help the poor and provide jobs for the poor. "We need economic reforms because only when businesses operate well will there be progress, and then we can run programmes to benefit the poor," he said.
"The world is saying that India is standing up," he said at the rally adding "The youth here will show not just India but also the whole world the way forward."
He also slammed the opposition for halting the central policies which are beneficial for the poor.  “Our country is fast growing and the entire globe appreciates that. But here the opposition just opposes all our development oriented policies. They are not bothered about the losses of the farmers, workers or the youth. We also were in opposition. When the Kargil war broke out, we stood by the government and extended our whole hearted support to the Vajpayee Government. We never opposed any move by the government which is helpful for the country and the people. Because, the country is supreme for us” he said.
Reiterating the need to change and cleanse the political system Rahul Gandhi said “We have to open the door of the system for all. We will have to listen to the lakhs people are assembled here. They are the future and we should give them a chance to become the leaders of tomorrow.  If we want the country to surge ahead, we the Congress party, should open our doors for the youth and common people.  Only we can do it. The opposition can only create obstructions”.
While concluding his address Rahul Gandhi said “I am confident that our country will stand up and the entire world will appreciate us. The youth here will show not just India but also the whole world the way forward. The Congress will help them by giving space in our political journey”.
