Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Friday called for empowering women, youth and representatives of local bodies if India wanted to achieve superpower status, declaring, "Fifty percent of India's population comprises women and the country can only be half strong, half powerful, half proud and half a superpower if they are not empowered." Reiterating his philosophy of decentralisation, Gandhi said political parties need to include public representatives from the grassroots level in selecting candidates for the Lok Sabha and assembly elections.
