Congress president Rahul Gandhi Tuesday aimed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his promise of providing employment to 2 crore youths during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Pointing an election rally, he sought to know why four people committed suicide in Rajasthan’s Alwar recently.
“Narendra Modi in his election speeches in 2014 had stated he would give jobs to 2 crore youths. If you gave employment, why did four youths commit suicide in Alwar?” Mr. Gandhi said at a rally in Alwar district’s Malakhera town.
Three persons, who were friends died and another was injured after they allegedly jumped before a moving train in a proven suicide pact in Alwar district last month.
A major probe revealed that they were depressed due to unemployment, police said. The Congress president also accused the Prime Minister of filling the coffers of industrialists with public money.
“Modi says ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ in every speech, but he operates for Anil Ambani. He should begin his address by saying ‘Anil Ambani ki Jai’, ‘Mehul Choksiki Jai’, ‘Nirav Modi ki Jai’ ‘Lalit Modi ki Jai’,” he said.
The BJP has denied the allegations.
Rajasthan will go to polls on December 7.
