The Congress party posted on Twitter that Rahul discussed a range of issues, such as job creation, investments and prevailing economic conditions, during his meeting with the CEOs.

During the meeting, the Congress chief admitted that the party "faced a storm" in 2012 and in the next two years "the system was destabilised and we saw the consequences".

He said, "We faced a storm in 2012. Between 2012 and 2014 the system was destabilised and we saw the consequences. We have a clean slate now, and a new opportunity. We will present you with a new Congress Party that envisions the values you were born with."

Attacking the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Rahul said that while the Congress sees society "as a system that has to be kept in balance", the ruling party "is less concerned about peace and tranquillity".

"We see society as a system that has to be kept in balance. The BJP, on the other hand, is less concerned about peace and tranquillity. We see very serious dangers of polarising society and risks arising from them," said Rahul during his interaction with the CEOs.

Later in the day, Rahul Gandhi is expected to address members of the Indian community living in Singapore.

Rahul is on a 3-day visit to Singapore and Malaysia where he will meet the Indian community, business leaders and members of the Indian Overseas Congress.

He is also slated to meet the Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong and the Prime Minister of Malaysia Najib Razak.
