The first such dialogue was held last week when Mr Gandhi discussed the coronavirus pandemic and its economic implications with former Reserve Bank of India governor Raghuram Rajan.
Mr Rajan had said India should be "cleverer" in lifting the lockdown and should open up its economy in a "measured way" soon to save jobs.
He had also said that Rs 65,000 crore should be spent to support the poor hit hard by the crisis.
