TURA, Feb 20 – All India Congress Committee vice president Rahul Gandhi visited Williamnagar constituency in Garo Hills in Meghalaya to assist the Congress campaign for the Assembly elections.
Rahul, who has been on a whirlwind tour of Meghalaya, spoke about the need for development and commended the work done by Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma. Rahul had campaigned along with Sonia Gandhi in Tura and Jowai yesterday.
Rahul said he was unhappy with the state of politics in India as he did not believe it was inclusive enough, with there being a huge difference between the common man and the politicians. He said that power was concentrated in the hands of the few and this has been leading to problems of development.
He said it was the reason for the slow growth of development. Rahul said that development had to be in response to needs and it was in this regard that the village democracy prevalent in the State was ideal – not just for solutions but for culture as well.
Rahul ended saying the CM needed to be more aggressive to develop the State and to cut out corruption.
