Rahul stresses empowerment

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has stressed women and youth empowerment to ensure sustainable development of the country.

Addressing a hug rally in Guwahati on Tuesday, Gandhi talked of politicians of two categories in the country. He said that the first category wants to empower people while the rest takes power from the people. “I belong to the first category,” said Gandhi. He said that the poor people needs to be empowered to translate their dreams into reality.
