Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday pointed out that judiciary in the country was too slow and said it has to improve.

Replying to a question during an interaction with college students in Vijayawada on why no action was being taken against people speaking against the country and the Vande Mataram, Rahul referred to the case of his father Rajiv Gandhi's assassination trial and the long-drawn process of justice administration.

"We have a system of judiciary which is too slow. Take my personal case. My father was assassinated. You all know how many years it took for its trial," Rahul pointed out and stressed the need for improving the justice administration process.

Replying specifically to the question, Rahul said, "Ours is not a dictatorship and everything is dealt with in accordance with the law."

During the 90-minute interaction, Rahul himself posed a question to the 1500-odd students, "What will be the biggest challenge that India faces in the next 30 years?"

"Politics and corruption," a girl student replied. "Poverty," said a boy.

Elimination of corruption was the biggest challenge, many students noted.
