Launching a scathing attack on PM Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said the youth will hit Prime Minister Narendra Modi with sticks if he is unable to address the issue of unemployment in the country.
Addressing a rally in Delhi for assembly election on Wednesday, Congress’ Rahul Gandhi warned PM Modi and said, “The PM is right now delivering speeches, but six months later, he will not be able to even leave his home.”
Rahul Gandhi said, “The youth of India will beat him up with sticks and make him understand that this country will not be able to make progress until jobs are provided to them.”
Accusing the Centre of failing to address concerns of the youth, Rahul Gandhi said, “Unemployment rate in India is at a 45-year high, but nothing was spoken about it in Budget or Presidential address by Narendra Modi and Nirmala Sitharaman.”
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi: Ye jo Narendra Modi bhashan de raha hai, 6 mahine baad ye ghar se bahar nahi nikal payega. Hindustan ke yuva isko aisa danda marenge, isko samjha denge ki Hindustan ke yuva ko rozgar diye bina ye desh aage nahi badh sakta. #DelhiElections pic.twitter.com/NXwUeOZ0lA

The former Congress chief had earlier in the day also attacked PM Narendra Modi, saying that the PM does not want the youth to get employment as it works like oxygen for his politics.
Addressing a poll rally in Chandni Chowk in old Delhi, Rahul Gandhi said there was no need for the prime minister to give lessons on nationalism and he should explain why was he not able to provide employment to the youth.
Rahul Gandhi said before Narendra Modi came to power in 2014, there was no Hindu-Muslim divide in the country from 2004-2014 but then “he comes to Delhi from Gujarat and spreads poison”.
“The youth now does not know what he has in store for the future. He has fear in his heart. Narendra Modi does not want the youth to get employment because unemployment is oxygen for his politics,” he said.
Taking a dig at the BJP, Rahul Gandhi said patriotism was to fight with the British and make India prosperous through white revolution, green revolution, information and technology revolution. He added, “Now, the real patriotism is to provide employment to the youth and I will fulfil it.”
The challenge before the country was how to get employment which only Congress could address, Rahul Gandhi said.
“Youth wants employment but Narendra Modi gets the same youth beaten up and shot with bullets. Soon we will see the countrymen asking Modi step aside. “Neither Modi nor the Delhi CM (Arvind Kejriwal) will speak on employment,” he said.
