Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying his government has given India the highest level of unemployment in the last five years and that the PM uses hatred to divert attention.
"Young people are asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi what happened to his promise – his countless promises, almost every second sentence of the Prime Minister is a feverish promise – of creating two crore jobs a year? Yet all the PM has given India is the highest level of unemployment we’ve faced in the last five years," said Rahul Gandhi in an interview with National Herald India.
Stating that unemployment has put the country in a very alarming state of vulnerability, Gandhi accused the Prime Minister and his party of using the anxieties and fears of people to spread anger and hatred.
"The ideology that drives PM Modi, the RSS and BJP uses this anxiety and insecurity to spread anger and hatred. They convert this anxiety into hatred against Muslims, Dalits, other minorities and marginalized people forcing two people – brothers – with common interests and dreams to go into combat with each other. But anger and hatred will not convert into jobs, or solutions. Once this engine of hatred starts, you cannot control it," Rahul said.
The Congress leader also said that he see neither a vision nor compassion in the present government.
When questioned about his vision for Congress, the Gandhi scion said that his party listens to people, makes policies accordingly and changes with the times. He contrasted this with the BJP, saying that they just talk and refuse to listen. He added that inclusiveness is a priority for him, unlike the Modi govt which believes that "giving benefits to a handful of people and business cronies is development of the whole country".
