“We are convinced India is spending less on education, our target is 6 per cent. It is not only about spending money on education, but also independence on education. All our educational institutions should be able to challenge us…I want you all to make me uncomfortable,” was Rahul Gandhi’s reply.

Rahul Gandhi said that he does not see enough women in leadership positions. “We cannot have women in power in India until attitude towards women changes, he said, adding that he thinks women are smarter than men.

The Congress president Rahul Gandhi asked the students not to undermine the strength of girls and if somebody asks them not to do a particular job or take up a task, “women should instead men what they were doing in these job”.

Rahul Gandhi said If you visit northern Indian states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, you’ll be shocked to see the way women are treated. I think Tamil Nadu leads when it comes to women and how they should be treated. But still there’s a lot which needs to be done here.

He also said “We are convinced India is spending less on education, our target is 6 per cent. It is not only about spending money on education, but also independence on education. All our educational institutions should be able to challenge us…I want you all to make me uncomfortable.”
