It is the NDA Vs UPA agenda; a young leader with a conventional mind versus an experienced leader with h new thought process, India needs a stable and strong government

Setting a new agenda for the Congress party ahead of the forthcoming Lok Sabha election, the young party general secretary Rahul Gandhi called for giving more representation to youth in electoral politics.

Pitching for the need of making "work" as the only criteria for selecting candidates for polls, the Amethi MP said, "Religion, caste, region or economic condition should be the criteria if we want genuine and promising youth leaders to join politics for serving the nation."

Addressing the grass-roots level Congress workers at a national convention in the capital, Rahul also said that though the country has an influential percentage of the young population, youth does not find it convenient to join politics.

"They have that intention and energy to work for the community and for the nation. They feel none raises the voice of people even after getting elected. We need to demolish all walls to make it convenient and reward for youth to join politics," the young leader said.

Taking up the case of block-level and district-level workers and their leaders, Rahul said that though they are responsible for the party's victories and they lead the protest march their cases are overlooked when it comes to the distribution of tickets. I am strongly in favour of these people getting their due share. We should not import someone else and ignore their role," the leader said.

The achievements of the UPA government were all the 52 schemes that were running in the country, but National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), Right To Information (RTI), Nuclear Agreement and debt waiver to the farmers would be the key issues, said Rahul Gandhi adding, ''implementation of acts like NREGA and RTI was a historical step for the country's future.

However, experienced Advani is promising to change the primary focus of the software industry from outsourcing for foreign economies to making it mainly India-centric, BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani today said an NDA government "will create a new policy climate" to achieve this aim. "Whereas much of our software industry labours to make foreign economies more competitive, a BJP-led government will create a new policy climate where we use technology mainly for India's - I would add, Bharat's -- sustainable development," Advani stated in the foreword to the party's IT Vision document.

"Whereas much of our software industry labours to make foreign economies more competitive, a BJP-led government will create a new policy climate where we use technology mainly for India's - I would add, Bharat's -- sustainable development," - Advani said.

The comment comes at a time when the US and other western countries have said that they would check outsourcing to India to boost their sagging economies and growing unemployment.

The saffron party leader said his government would bring about a radical shift of emphasis in favour of "agriculture, rural economy, infrastructure development, small and medium enterprises, the informal sector of the economy, affordable healthcare for all, meaningful education for all.

And national security, both internal and external". Promising to make the "internet as ubiquitous as electricity", Advani said an NDA government would create 20 IT-related jobs in every village. This would mean 1.2 crore IT-enabled jobs in the rural hinterland of the country, he said.
