  • “When accountability leaves corruption takes its place”

It also said this was Gandhi's first foreign visit since his elevation as party chief in December. Harichandan, along with several senior leaders of the party, observed the Foundation Day at the Congress Bhavan here and gave the call, 'Mun nuhein, Ame (We, Not I)' for the revival of Congress fortunes in Odisha.

Rahul Gandhi received a "euphoric reception" by members of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) on his arrival in Bahrain earlier today, Congress said in a tweet.

"Congress party has questioned them in the state". You have shown us how you have built the countries you have journeyed to. "We will update it (Indian politics)".

"There is a good mix of experience and youth in the Congress party".

"You said there is gap". But, we are fighting on the ground.

"This party has so much power that it will defeat the BJP in 2019", he said on the partys plans for 2019 polls.

Kyle Edmund gets rematch with Grigor Dimitrov in Brisbane quarters
After seeing Edmund's distress, Dimitrov immediately leaped over the net and sprinted to his aid, helping the Briton to his chair. (The jumping, not the sportsmanship.) Edmund would end up finishing the match, though Dimitrov prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-4.

The Congress party, he said is "the most tested ideology" that "brings people together and does not create any division". "If we are successful in shaping a "new Congress" defeating the BJP wouldn't be a hard task", he said.

Gandhi's outreach is being seen as a move to popularise Congress among the large Indian diaspora. "We can not imagine an India that does not belong to all of us", he said. Gandhi said the Congress vision of India believed in building bridges between peoples and communities, was compassionate and also tried and tested, with strong roots in the NRI community as some of its greatest leaders were all NRIs, including Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and BR Ambedkar.

"New investments are the lowest they have been in 13 years, bank credit growth has sunk to a 63 year low", said he.

Rahul alleged that job creation in India today is at an 8 year low. Gandhi is expected to return to India on January 9. The only thing India talks about is what you are allowed to eat, who is allowed to protest and what we can say or rather what we cannot say.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi engages with the diaspora during his visits overseas.
