Berkeley, California: Indian National Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today began his two-week visit to the US during which he will interact with global thinkers and political leaders as part of an outreach initiative by his party.

In his first engagement, Gandhi would address students of the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, on ‘India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward’, in which he would talk about his vision about India and where the country is leading.

“He is here at the University of California, Berkeley, where Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru addressed in 1949 as the Prime Minister. Today we are at the cross roads where core value of Indian democracy, secularism, and pluralistic society is in danger,” Congress spokesman Madhu Goud Yaskhi said.

The event venue is full and the registration for Rahul Gandhi’s talk has already been closed. The event will be held at the Chevron Auditorium, UC Berkeley International House, from 6.30 PM to 8 PM local time.

The event is being sponsored by the Institute for South Asia Studies, UC Berkeley; and the Berkeley Research on Contemporary India Program, Institute of International Studies, UC Berkeley.
