BJP parliamentarian Varun Gandhi will be publishing a book, "Rural Manifesto", in December which will explore rural India's innate perseverance and highlight potential solutions in development policy with a focus on making the rural economy resilient, New Delhi-based Rupa Publications announced on Tuesday.

"‘Rural Manifesto' sparks a national conversation on rural distress, highlighting the potential solutions to putting the village economy on an even keel while exploring how the vast majority of India ekes out a living," the publisher said in a statement.

The timely book will cover facets of the Indian rural economy, and the author shines a bright light on the travails of the marginal farmer and asks searching questions on why the rural economy remains in the doldrums, six decades after Independence.

Varun Gandhi is a second-term MP, who represented the Pilibhit constituency in 2009, and was elected from the Sultanpur constituency in 2014. He was the youngest ever National Secretary of the BJP from 2008-11, and the youngest ever National General Secretary of the Party from 2011-14. He is a member of its National Executive too.
