Amethi: Congress vice-president on Thursday said that there was a ‘lot of anger’ in India which should be brought down. Talking on the development front, the Gandhi scion asserted that the country should move forward by taking all sections along.
    
Addressing a function on the occasion of foundation laying ceremony of CRPF training center at Trishundi, the Congress vice-president spoke of how a Khalistan supporter, also an MLA, joined political mainstream in Punjab after peace was restored in the once militancy-wrecked state.

The Khalistan supporter’s anger came down as both the Congress and Akali gave space to him in the political system, said Rahul adding that the presence of CRPF was also laudable.
    
"There is a lot of anger in the country. It has to be brought down" as was done in Punjab, Gandhi said.
    
"India is a thought...youths make it, you make it. We have to include everyone and move forward," the Congress leader said as he praised paramilitary force CPRF's efforts in bringing normalcy in Punjab.

He regretted that only 30-40 percent CRPF personnel get housing facility and added that jawans say that they were not afraid of fighting for the country, but of the hardships to their families.
    
Rahul said that jawans of this force were fighting on two fronts - 'terrorists and for their families'. "I want to tell Shindeji that whatever can be done for the families of the jawans, should be done," he added.
    
Kanchan, wife of CRPF jawan Rajiv Kumar Yadav, and Savitri Devi, wife of Vinod Kumar Yadav, who were killed in Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh in April 2010, were also honoured on the occasion.
