In his interaction with the expat student community in the UAE hosted by IMT-Dubai, Mr. Rahul Gandhi shared a glimpse of India he has envisaged for the future generation. An India that embraces diverse views, where people can speak their minds without fear. He addressed various issues like brain drain, Indian education system, scaling up of SMEs and many more. He alerted students regarding two pressing problems of India: unemployment and agriculture. While contrasting the glorious past of India with the current environment, he reminded the students of the greater responsibility they have, to make India greater.
