New Delhi, Jan 23 (IANS) Newly-appointed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Wednesday said he wanted to try and reduce the "negative politics" and get into "positive politics", which would take the country forward.

Addressing party leaders at the 24, Akbar Road party office here, Gandhi said he wanted to make the Congress party "accessible to as many people... this is my sentiment".

He said political discussions tended to be "extremely acrimonious, fighting with each other over small reasons... want to try and reduce that, don't want to get into negative politics, want to get into positive politics as that is what will take the country forward".

"We are a dynamic country and this country can do wonders... Lately I feel a lot of the discussion is negative... there is a lot of positive things happening everyday... Many youngsters are transforming things."

He was elevated Saturday to the post of party vice president at the Congress Chintan Shivir in Jaipur.
