Rahul Gandhi's first interface with corporate honchos on Thursday
New Delhi: More than a month after being promoted as party Vice President, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will have his first interaction with business leaders on Thursday where he may spell out his vision for economic growth of the country.
CII's Annual General Meeting (AGM), starting on April 3, will provide Gandhi the platform for his maiden interaction with India Inc.
The 42-year-old Congress leader is slated to speak at a 45 minutes session on the second-day of the meet which will also be attended by top business leaders and industrialists like Bharti Airtel head Sunil Bharti Mittal, Godrej Group Chairman Adi Godrej and Wipro Chairman Azim Premji.
Industry chamber CII's annual general meetings over the years have seen many political bigwigs cutting across party lines make an appearance to enunciate their vision for economic growth. Congress president and Rahul's mother Sonia Gandhi had made at least two showings at the annual conference in the past.
This year's AGM will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath ruled out an early end to the Parliament winter session, saying it will run as per schedule. He further said that Lokpal Bill remains the top priority even as both, the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been repeatedly disrupted due to protests against the creation Telangana.
