Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that the only way for any government to instill faith among youngsters is to create jobs by competing with China, as the neighbouring country is going to be the prime competitor for the next 30 years.
Ms Banerjee's template for the opposition unity, inspired by the Akhilesh Yadav-Mayawati team's stunning victory in the Uttar Pradesh by-elections, was that major opposition parties should put up only one candidate against the BJP in seats. Hailing the Chief Minister, Gandhi said "Now, when we get the government in Delhi, we will learn from the Karnataka government because the person doing the most hard work should be rewarded the most". At some of her meetings, according to reports, she was told by veteran opposition leaders such as Sharad Pawar that the Congress had to be part of such a coalition to have the punch.
Hinting at the coming together of the Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) for 2019, Gandhi said the opposition parties would keep aside their regional aspirations and personal ambitions to jointly bring down the BJP and Modi next year.
Rahul's decision was communicated to all state unit presidents, AICC general secretaries and Congress legislative party leaders in different states through a letter by general secretary Ashok Gehlot. The BJP's decline will start from Karnataka followed by Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Rajasthan.
To a question on the Congress' vision for the future, Mr. Gandhi said: "I think there are lessons for us from 2014".
