Rahul Gandhi: Whatever we write on our manifesto, we will accomplish that
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi held a meeting with SC/ST representatives to discuss Congress Manifesto. He launched the consultations – Your Voice, Our Pledge – with the 235 representatives from NGOs and groups working for upholding the rights of the deprived sections comprising dalits, tribals and OBCs, and assured to bring a change in the manner politics is played behind closed doors.

“We started this process to open to these close doors gradually. There are two closed rooms in Indian politics, one is policies and other one is ticket. We want to open these two rooms in this 21st century. This is the reason I have come here and discussing this with you. It’s not a mere paper but it’s a commitment for us when our party forms a government. Whatever we write on our manifesto, we will accomplish that,” said Rahul Gandhi.

“The Congress has to completely transform itself and it has to give voice to our biggest supporters. It cannot continue to operate the way it does. It means developing, and promoting leadership among these communities and making them run, there is no other way around. Everything else is history. You are seeing right now the first step of that process. In the Youth Congress we have been doing this for years. We understand how it is does very well. We have all the system to do it. We are going to implement and you are going to see the difference,” Rahul Gandhi said.

“Everybody talks big things. The basic problem is in this country that 500 people run this country. And until we move from 500 people running this country to million people running this country, real change in this country is not going to come. This is something that I understand deeply. And if there is anything I want to achieve in my political career is to a place where 500 people run this country or certainly the Congress party to place where thousands and thousands youngsters like you tribal, dalit, OBC, upper, Hindu, Muslim run this country.

Until we move to a place where you running the country you are not going to get what you want, that what we want to do. We have to go forward by including people not only in manifesto but also in ticket distribution.” Rahul Gandhi added.

The Congress party also said the private sector should have reservation in jobs to effectively implement the plan for affirmative action. Congress plans to release its manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections by the end of next month by incorporating suggestions it receives during similar consultations it plans to hold across the country. The consultations were only the beginning, Rahul Gandhi said.
