Generate gas from gutter, fry pakodas, that is PM Modi’s strategy for jobs: Rahul Gandhi

Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that the latter’s strategy for generating jobs for the youth is to use gas from the gutter and fry pakodas.

“PM Modi promised two crore jobs every year and now asks the youth to make pakodas. He also promised to provide gas connections, and now talks about using gas from the gutter,” Gandhi said while addressing a gathering in Karnataka’s Bidar.

The Congress President drew a contrast between PM Modi-led Central government which has failed to waive off farmers’ loans and his government in Karnataka which waived off the loans of the state farmers as soon as it came to power in the state.

“On one hand, PM Modi waives off debts worth ₹2.5 lakh crore for 10-15 large businesses, and on the other hand, he makes the people of India stand in lines in the name of Demonetisation. Modi ji promised ₹15 lakh. Is there somebody who got even ₹10? We promised that as soon as the Congress will come to power in Karnataka, our priority would be waiving farmers’ loans. We fulfilled it,” Gandhi said.
