Rahul Gandhi visits Ranchi in Jharkhand

Rahul Gandhi to Tribal women at Ranchi: I will fight your struggle, with you and for you
Ranchi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who is on a one-day visit to Jharkhand, interacted with tribal women at Ranchi. He also had held similar discussions with other sections of the society across the country.
Rahul Gandhi patiently heard the complaints, suggestions and remarks from tribal women and also shared some of his thoughts with them. "I have a long relationship with you. I am here to fight for your rights. I will take your battle ahead with your support”, assured the Congress Vice President.
“I had already told several times that we cannot develop if we do not empower the women in our country properly. Panchayati Raj system ensures reservation for women, but still, the women empowerment is not taking place in the required manner. Tribal women are also not empowered properly. They need education, health & political participation” said Rahul Gandhi.
“I want to fight for the rights of Adivasi women; I want more and more from you to join politics.. We need to empower tribal women, give them equal opportunities” added Rahul Gandhi.
Striking a chord with the gathering the Congress leader said, “Adivasi community has the better ideas than anyone else in our country”. He also asserted that the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre implemented several policies for the welfare of the people and the Tribals. “Our govt gave you MNREGA, Food Security and Tribal bills... The Food Security bill gives the people rights to food; this will benefit tribals the most” informed Rahul Gandhi.
Most of the workers raised issues relating to local governance, opening of closed factories in Maoist-prone areas, employment opportunities for tribal women, and providing education to tribal children. Rahul Gandhi also told the gathering that he wanted tribal women to come forward to fight elections and become MLAs and MPs.
