"A message is given by a prime minister. What the PM says, feels is transmitted to the system. So, this environment of hatred that is there, if a prime minister sends a clear message that 'India is one' and its 'people are one', then that situation will subside on its own," Gandhi said.

He emphasised that India a "country of love and amity".

"It is naturally so. It is not a country of hatred. So, If the leadership sends direction, it (anger and hatred) will automatically dissolve," Gandhi said.

He also asked the students present at the event if the "anger level" in the country was increasing or decreasing? "There is job crisis and if it is not resolved then this anger will not go away," he said.

So, this situation can be resolved by addressing the job issue and through amity, he added.
