Rahul Gandhi invites biz leaders to Kashmir
New Delhi, Oct 2: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi has invited the country’s top industrialists to a panel discussion and interaction with students in Kashmir, seeking to dispel corporate concerns about investing in the Himalayan state.
Among those invited to the 5 October event at the University of Kashmir in Srinagar are Tata group chairman Ratan Tata, Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumaramangalam Birla, Housing Development Finance Corporation Ltd chairman Deepak Parekh, Bajaj Auto Ltd managing director Rajiv Bajaj and Wipro Ltd chairman Azim Premji.
The invitees have confirmed they would attend the programme, which will be the highlight of Gandhi’s two-day tour of Jammu and Kashmir, sources said.
During his last visit to the state in September 2011, Gandhi interacted with students of the university who complained to him about the lack of job opportunities and the absence of top businesses in the state.
Gandhi had then promised the students that he would bring a delegation of business leaders to the valley to give the students a chance to convince them about business opportunities in Kashmir.
