Start-ups and intolerance can’t go hand in hand: Rahul Gandhi to Mumbai students

MumbaiCongress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for what he termed as their “rigid thinking” which hampers creativity and start-ups in the country.

On the day when the Narendra Modi government’s ambitious start-up mission got underway, Gandhi said the RSS has a very “rigid vision” for India and that start-ups require free movement of ideas.

While interacting with management students of Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Juhu-Vile Parle, here, Gandhi said: “The ruling dispensation, particularly the RSS, has a clear idea on what the world should look like. They have a vision for India which in my opinion is a very rigid vision. This country requires flexibility, openness and movement of ideas.”
