Rahul Gandhi's CII Lecture : Your Opinion

Rahul Gandhi gives India Inc a ‘bee’ school lecture

TNN | Apr 5, 2013, 02.02 AM IST
NEW DELHI: In a rare interaction with India Inc, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi unveiled his vision of 21st century India glorifying the country's complexities (which are viewed by industry as obstacles) and its die-hard spirit, but failed to offer any concrete roadmap for the future.

Gandhi, seen as a prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha election, used several anecdotes to illuminate his points, took a veiled dig at Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, and compared India to a "beehive" to talk about the buzz that represented India's dynamism even as he took tentative steps to stamp his presence in this gathering of the country's corporate elite.

"Millions of Indians are brimming with energy. We are now sitting on an unprecedented tide of transformation. This tremendous movement of people and ideas is going to define this country in the 21st century," said the Gandhi scion.

There was huge anticipation about Gandhi's speech. Industrialists began queuing up more than an hour before the event to hear the young leader who has so far shown a preference for the village "choupal" over business chambers.

In his speech, Gandhi positioned himself as an outsider to the system, slamming the political and the educational system for excluding a large section of the population. The fact that he's actually been a part of the ruling dispensation left several in the audience bemused.

"Today we are mortgaging a large part of our future because our education and training is based on defunct ideas and ideas that are no longer relevant," Gandhi said. "Our university structures are closed. They are silos. The university is a network. It has to be connected to the industry."

As he spoke, Gandhi appeared to gain in confidence and India Inc cheered his speech. However, the response on social media was hardly flattering. The top trend on Twitter during Gandhi's speech was #PappuCII.

Gandhi also used the occasion to caution the audience about the dangers of divisive politics which some analysts said was aimed at Modi who has emerged as a strong contender for the PM's job in 2014. "When you play the politics of alienating communities, you stop the movement of people and ideas. When that happens we all suffer. Businesses suffer and the seeds of disharmony are sown and the dreams of our people are severely disrupted," Gandhi said.

In another oblique reference to Modi, he added, "One man riding a horse cannot solve the country's problems. It is a collective effort. The architecture we have to build is to connect the grassroots with the political system, open the political system... It is very dangerous to leave people behind. Inclusive growth is a win-win for everybody."

Putting on an air of informality, Gandhi paced up and down the stage as he answered questions. Many found some of his answers confusing and long winded. "The speech was partly philosophical. He is not in the government. But he clearly spoke as a person who is in the political system," CII president Adi Godrej said.

"Rahul Gandhi's speech reflected that he lives in his own world. He was meant to answer what has happened in the nine years (of UPA rule) but there was no mention of corruption or inflation. Instead of answering questions, he was asking questions. It is a tacit admission that nothing has been done," BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said.

Gandhi sought industry's help to build the country's infrastructure, saying the government was incapable of doing it alone. "Government cannot build this infrastructure alone. We are incapable of doing it alone. We need your help. It has to be done jointly and together we will find models where capital is used efficiently and without delays," Gandhi said.

The packed hall at a five-star hotel was led by Gandhi on his discovery of India with examples on India's energy, its youth, the journey of young migrants such as Girish from Gorakhpur to Mumbai chasing their dreams, a poor mother's firm belief that her son would become an IAS officer.

But that journey brushed aside the current economic woes of Asia's third-largest economy. There was no mention of India's economic slowdown, rising prices or corruption.

He also shrugged off speculation about his taking over as PM in 2014. "These are irrelevant questions. It's all smoke. I got press guys asking when you are getting married. Somebody else saying, boss, when are you going to be the Prime Minister. Somebody saying, no you are not going to be PM, somebody say may be PM," he said.

At one point Gandhi used CII vice-president Ajay Shriram as a prop to illustrate his interaction with a Chinese official. "The Chinese PM's secretary came up to me and asked me why is everybody worried about China and not India? India is actually much more powerful that it thinks," he said.

He replied to that saying, "India is a decentralised system. Its power is soft, but it is there. Boss, our environment is not simple, we cannot give you simple answers... China is a dragon. India is called an elephant, but we're not an elephant, we're a beehive."

Re: Rahul Gandhi's CII Lecture : Your Opinion

Entire speech is so abstract that it hardly produces any conceivable operational points.

For example

[/quote]"Millions of Indians are brimming with energy. We are now sitting on an unprecedented tide of transformation. This tremendous movement of people and ideas is going to define this country in the 21st century,"[/quote]

when wasn't India like above, the point is he has no vision that can be materialized, or in Indian style, vision is so holy, like pushpak viman, which cannot be conceived in reality but does/did exist

Re: Rahul Gandhi's CII Lecture : Your Opinion

I watched some portions of the speech & liked it. He seemed to indicate that the poverty issue can be addressed only if politicians & corporates genuinely colloborate. there is no other way (which is right)

Kangress is already working hard to distribute (direct deposit) free money to poor people.. So they can relax and never have to work again in their life.. And Kangress can get votes from govt money.. Dont have to invest their own.

Re: Rahul Gandhi's CII Lecture : Your Opinion

Only congress supporters found RaGa's blah blah make sense or maybe he is inspired by Nostradamus to speak in riddles.
But the fact is NaMo is a Leader and RaGa only a poor Reader

I did not watch (since I ran out of patience looking for some sense in his so called speech).

Did he get into specifics of this 'collaboration'? How does he think he's going to achieve this?

1) By politicians taxing the corporates more?
2) By politicians forcing corporates to employ more people than they require?
3) By politicians forcing foreign investments is areas like Bengal and then evicting them like the TATA's were under pressure from the poor?

Man if this statement of this fool can impress you. Then how about this statement of mine...this will make you salute me, obviously if you dont expect specifics from Rahul Gandhi who lords over policy makers of India you will not expect specifics from a commoner like myself!

'There should be peace in the world'!

Re: Rahul Gandhi's CII Lecture : Your Opinion

First of all, politicians are not the ONLY corrupt people in this country. Corruption is like the dna of the country and hence RaGa was not entirely wrong when he said that congress is like the DNA of India.
He may not be suitable politician given the nature of politics in this country. But that does not mean is is not suitable for anything else including expressing his views & opinions. And also, he does not claim to be the best of anything so you never know he may become suitable some day. He seldom over-rates his party or himself, accepts that there are flaws galore, admits that lots is required to be done etc. Dont know when was the last time a politician in this country did no boast about his and his party's achievements.
I am not his fan (particularly bcoz of the sycophancy he probably he enjoys 24*7*365) but I dont dislike him altogether.

Re: Rahul Gandhi's CII Lecture : Your Opinion

Shanti ke sanam bhai.. Any layman can say those things he is saying.. Whats the big deal?

I would like n vote for him if he takes a ministry n manages it well.. Even Lalu prasad did it, manage Raiways.. Straight away he cannot become PM.. He dont even read no books or take part in any discussion in parliament.. Jab dilli mein young log protest kar rahe the to youth leader RaGa ko lakva maar gaya tha kya, why didnt he come out even once? Aise nakare ko PM? Itni buri haalat hai apne desh ki.??

I give u an example.. Azim Premji (Wipro) ka beta Rishad.. He is working as a VP of a division right now.. Before becoming CEO or MD he has to learn the tricks of the trade.
