Rahul Gandhi

This was Rahul's first visit to the party headquarters after he was anointed as its vice president on January 19 during the two-day 'chintan shivir' in Jaipur.

He held an informal chat with 60-odd office bearers including CWC members, party general secretaries, AICC secretaries and in charges of various states and frontal wings telling them such meetings both collectively and individually will now happen more often.

Noting that India is a dynamic country and this country can do wonders, Rahul said that there is a lot positive things about this country that also needs to be focused.

"Lately I feel... that a lot of discussions are negative ... Many many positive things that are happening everyday. Many many youngsters are transforming things and I think that also needs to be focused. That is what I am interested into," he said.

Replying to questions he said his message is same for Tamil Nadu or Andhra Pradesh what it is for the rest of the nation.

In the meeting with party leaders, Gandhi said there is huge talent in the party and all individual talents need to be tapped. The chintan shivir that concluded in Jaipur last week also came in for a brief mention.

"Rahul Gandhi said we will work together on taking the party forward. He said after seeing you all, I feel our party has much talent," party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said after the meeting.

In his maiden speech after being appointed the vice president in Jaipur also, Rahul had made it clear that senior leadership of the party will continue to have its say irrespective of the changes that are in the offing.

"Earlier I was the general secretary, in-charge of Youth Congress and NSUI. Now I am vice president of the Congress party. You should not feel that Rahul talks only about youth.
