Congress president Rahul Gandhi it is farmers who ensured 'Make in India' happens through their blood and sweat.
'The BJP-led government wrote off Rs 2.5 lakh crore loans of India's richest 15-20 people but a similar demand by farmers to waive off their debt was ignored,' Congress President
Mumbai: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not keep his assurance of providing jobs to two crore youth in a year.

Addressing a Congress workers' rally in Mumbai, Rahul Gandhi also targeted the Modi government on a range of issues, as he tried to enthuse the party's booth-level workers ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

The BJP-led government did not provide jobs to two crore youth in a year as was promised by PM Modi in the run up to the 2014 general elections, Rahul Gandhi said. The Congress leader observed that China has been providing jobs to 50,000 youth per 24 hours.

"However, the BJP-led government gives jobs to 450 youth in the same span," he said.

"(Modi had said) the Prime Minister will give jobs to 2 crore youth in a year. And in the Lok Sabha, his minister said unemployment is the highest in last eight years in India," Rahul Gandhi said.

"The BJP-led government wrote off Rs 2.5 lakh crore loans of India's richest 15-20 people but a similar demand by farmers to waive off their debt was ignored," he said. "(Union finance minister Arun) Jaitley ji says it is not their policy to waive of loans taken by farmers," Rahul Gandhi said.

On the government's 'Make in India' initiative, the Congress president said it is the farmers who ensured 'Make in India' happens through their blood and sweat. "Farmers will compete with China if you strengthen them a little bit," Rahul Gandhi said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Congress leader slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for "not talking" about employment for youth and farmers and said that his fight was against the government's policies.

Rahul Gandhi, who appeared before a court in Bhiwandi town in Mumbai in connection with a defamation case filed against him by a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker, also dared the BJP and the RSS to slap as many cases on him as they wanted to.
