Rahul Gandhi invites NRIs to work with Congress raising concerns over deterring tolerance in India

New Delhi: Most people are "worried" about what has happened to India's tradition of tolerance, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said following his interactions with students in the US. Gandhi invited non-resident Indians (NRIs) to "work with the Congress".

"I had many conversations during my trip. Most people were worried about what has happened to the tolerance that used to prevail in India," Gandhi said on Twitter on Thursday, without naming any party or leader.

In another post, he said, "NRIs have tremendous knowledge and understanding in different fields. I invite you to work with the Congress and discuss the vision forward."

Gandhi said India will have to empower small and medium businesses if it has to produce "millions of jobs".

The Congress vice president had two public interactions in the US at University of California, Berkeley and Princeton University where he targeted the government on various issues.

Gandhi is in the US on a two-week-long tour.
