Targetting Narendra Modi over the issue of rising unemployment and farmers’ crisis, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that the prime minister should stop “wasting time” of the countrymen if he can’t address these issues. He added that if the prime minister is unable to address the problems like unemployment, he should just leave as the Congress will come and do it in six months.

“Farmers and youth are the two main issues concerning India and if Modiji cannot address these, he should say so and the Congress will come and do it in six months,” he said at a ‘chaupal’ (village gathering) in Kathawra village under Jagdispur area here in Uttar Pradesh.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to stop wasting the time of the countrymen and start giving employment to the youth as promised,” said the Congress leader soon after his arrival in Amethi on a three-day visit.

“The youth of the country feel they are not getting the opportunity to work for the nation…their anger is increasing and…the farmers are committing suicide,” he said.

Charging the BJP with ignoring schemes like food park and others projects meant for the development of Amethi, he said, “It is unfortunate that the BJP has harmed the interest ofpeople of Amethi…this is wrong. Their (BJP’s) thinking is like this only…but I will fight for you all.”

Referring to schemes such as Make in India and Start up campaigns, Rahul said these will have no meaning if there is no talk about ‘Make in Amethi’ and ‘Make in UP’.

    RahulG is hollow as ever! insipid! playing to a set gallery! Rahul is an oasis that deludes! People will remain thirst for ever and Amethi is a sitting example. He should first get out of heckling the PM and behave.

            Rahul stop wasting time. Tell us why you turn out wearing huge Hindu "Tikkas" when you are a Christian. Is that to garner Hindu votes by fooling them into believing that you are a Hindu? Tell us why you told the American ambassador back in 2010 that "Hindu groups pose the biggest terrorist threat in India"? Surely you were aware that Hindus were being killed in bomb blasts by jihadis practically every month in India during the de facto regime of your mother for 10 years. Tell us what were doing with $140,000 in cash when the FBI detained you at Boston airport several years ago, as Dr. Swamy has said time and again? Tell us: Are your loyalties to India or Italy because Dr. Swamy alleges that you have Italian citizenship? And why the second name Raul Vinci? You always keep one foot in Europe. Why is that? Is that because you really consider yourself a European and not an Indian? Tell us, tell us, tell. Stop wasting time, Rahul.
