Bargarh: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday stepped up his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for failing to provide jobs to youths in country in general and State in particular.
Is there anyone here who can say Naveen Patnaik or Narendra Modi gave them employment?” asked the Congress president.
Adresing a rally,Gandhi said, “I do not like to make false promises of depositing Rs 15 lakh into your bank accounts or generating two crore jobs every year, but I assure farmers that out government, if voted to power in Odisha, will build cold storages across the state, provide minimum assured price of Rs 2,500 to farmers, give back land to displaced people and waive off farm loans,” he said.
Notably, this was Rahul’s fourth visit to Odisha in last three months. The Congress chief had visited Bhubaneswar on January 25, followed by Bhawanipatna in Kalahandi district and Rourkela in Sundargarh district on February 6, and Jeypore in Koraput district on March 8.
