Some people in rural areas live better life than those in the urban areas, he added.

Gandhi was here as a participant for a consultation on the theme, "The Challenges of Negotiating India's Rural Transformation: Evolving strategies for IRMA's Response", Chief Administrative Officer, IRMA, Poonam Patel said.

The other participants at the two-day consultation that ended today included Prof Abhijit Sen, Member of Planning Commission, Prof S Parasuraman, Director, TISS, and other experts working in the rural sector.
