New Delhi, Nov 2 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday asking for focus on the common man said that we have to take them forward in the similar manner as Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh is leading the nation forward.

"In the last five to six years, I have toured all of India. Cities, villages...Two things have been very clear, if we have to take our nation forward, only the strength of the poor man can take us forward," said Rahul Gandhi during an unscheduled speech made at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) session here today.

"But if we have to take the poor forward, the way the PM is taking the nation forward, that's what we need," he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Rahul Gandhi exhorted his party men to work to get the two India's together.

"One is progressing fast, one is the poor India which is not progressing. Our work is to join both." And only the Congress could do this," he said.

Rahul Gandhi pledging to strengthen the party said those who predicted the end of the Congress have been proved wrong.

"Every year the strength of this party is increasing. It has not finished anywhere," he claimed.

Rahul Gandhi's words of encouragement came as the Congress met today to elect and nominate 'General Secretaries' for the Congress Working Committee in the shadow of the Adarsh Society Housing Scam and the Commonwealth Games, which have made the Opposition to train their guns on the ruling party and several of its leaders.
