NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi has assured students that his party will do everything it can to ensure they have direct access to opportunities and end corruption which holds them back.
In a letter to students, the Congress chief said that they are nation-builders and nations today forge ahead not with war, but with advances in science, technology, art and literature.
The letter, translated in all regional languages, will be distributed by the NSUI in colleges across the country as part of the party's 'Behtar Bharat' (Better India) campaign to mobilise students around an egalitarian students agenda, a statement from the Congress party said.
