Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today suggested that there are more important fundamental issues like education and infrastructure than Ayodhya.

Interacting with students at IIT Guwahati, Gandhi said, "my personal view is that there are many many fundamental issues that are much more important like infrastructure, the type of education we are providing to our youngsters and the type of technology we use".

He was responding to a question on whether he thinks it is worthwhile at this time to spend so much time and energy over deciding whether a temple or mosque should be there at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

Gandhi at the same time said, "We are a democracy and there are people in this country for whom those types of decisions are important and they have a perspective and view on this".
