India-West News Desk
WASHINGTON, DC – Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be visiting the US in May for 10 days and comes following his party’s thumping victory in Karnataka. Analysts say it has increased the stature of Gandhi and he is now being seen as a party leader who is willing to work in the grassroots.
Gandhi, also is no longer a sitting MP having been disqualified from parliament, creating protests and the ruling party in India being accused of exhibiting non-democratic principles.
During his visit, he is expected to speak at Stanford University, meet the public in Santa Clara on May 30, and address a rally in New York. Indian Overseas Congress Chairperson Sam Pitroda said the public meetings and interactions with students, are aimed at promoting “real democracy”, has said.
Gandhi will also visit Washington DC where he will meet lawmakers and members of think tanks.
Speaking at a Karnataka Assembly victory celebration in Chicago, IL
Pitroda said, “The purpose of his (Gandhi’s) trip is to connect, interact and begin a new conversation with various individuals, institutions, and media, including the Indian diaspora that is growing in numbers in the United States and abroad to promote the shared values and vision of the real democracy with a focus on freedom, inclusion, sustainability, justice, peace, and opportunities world over.”
Others in the know said Gandhi had a packed schedule during his visit with him keen to meet people.

Rahul Gandhi should spend more time in the United States. It will be better for his public image which has been tarnished during the last decade by the ultra-nationalists, reactionaries, and jingoists. To counter the BJP propaganda, big lie, and deliberate use of emotional religious symbols, he must reframe the New India narrative as professed by his great grandfather. There are more Indian American political theorists and philosophers here in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world, including India. They will be a source of excellent advice and recommendations on governance and public policy formulation processes. They will assist him in the development of a long-range strategic plan for political and economic success of the nation. Additionally, he would need a wider exposure to workable strategies to counter BJP’s powerful emotional call for merging majority religion with national agenda and goals.May 22, 2023
Useless Gandhi is now coming to US . Has he even looked for a job? What qualification he has to even get a job? How many jobs he has created? Where is he getting money for daily living and visiting overseas for useless purposes. Shame on his supporters. The root cause of all the India’s borders disputes fall on the corrupt Nehru-Ghandi family.May 22, 2023
