Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at Narendra Modi regarding his interview with actor Akshay Kumar where he spoke about mangoes. Addressing an election rally at Neemuch, ahead of the fourth and last phase of Lok Sabha polls, Rahul asked what did Modi do for the unemployed youth.
“You will see Modi give interviews where he tells how he eats mangoes or how he gets the sleeves of his kurta designed,” he says. “Now, tell the people what you have done for the unemployed youth in the last five years,” he said.
He also ridiculed Modi over claim on cloud cover during the air strike. “Modi ji, whenever it rains in India, do all aircraft disappear from the radar,” Gandhi asked.
He also talked about the NYAY scheme, and stated that it will jump-start the Indian economy and set right the “injustice” done due to GST and demonetisation.
“The Nyay scheme will benefit five crore families who earn less than Rs 12,000 per month. This means Rs 72,000 will be deposited in the bank accounts of beneficiaries annually and Rs 3.6 lakh in five years,” he said.
“The Nyay scheme will ensure that people start purchasing goods, while small and medium businesses can start manufacturing the goods resulting in employment opportunities,” he added.
