Congress president Rahul Gandhi has expressed his concerns over the growing intolerance and pervasive unrest in the country.
This, he said, was leading to widespread anger and hatred in the country. “Instead of moving fast to curb this, the government is only fanning the fires of communal discord,” Gandhi said.
He exhorted NRIs to participate in the process of nation-building back home and spoke about the dire need of shifting the political narrative to development, employment, education and healthcare from the current discourse on hatred, violence, and moral policing.
He said, “The conversations in India are about what one can eat. People are killed for their beliefs. Judges dealing with sensitive issues are killed mysteriously and the government says nothing.”
Narendra Modi’s silence on the violent protests in Koregaon is defeaning.

“When there is violence against somebody in the country today, there is silence from the government. I cannot imagine an India where everybody does not feel a part of it,” Gandhi said.
