The professionals, from various states across the country and working at organisations such as Google, KPMG and Deloitte, joined Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ in Uttar Pradesh. “Our biggest networks are not connected at all. You guys are a tiny network. You are one percent of the county. You are not connected to anything else,” Gandhi said.

Talking about networking, he said, “Today, most Indians do not have access to the opportunities and progress that only a few enjoy. We need to reimagine development and technology so that we create an economy that doesn’t leave 90% of our population behind.”

“These networks are not just physical. There are caste networks, business networks, and agriculture networks in India,” he said.

Gandhi stressed that technology must include all Indians in the development process by bringing disconnected networks together.

Highlighting challenges faced by farmers and the MSME sector, Gandhi said, “On one hand, our primary producers, India’s farmers are being harassed and denied their right to a minimum income, while on the other, the second level of production, - the MSMEs - suffer the burden of a poorly planned GST and the monopoly of crony capitalists.”
