Rahul Gandhi on unemployment rate in India

Earlier on Wednesday, Congress' Rahul Gandhi warned PM Modi and said, "The PM is right now delivering speeches, but six months later, he will not be able to even leave his home."

Addressing a rally in Delhi, Rahul Gandhi said, "The youth of India will beat him up with sticks and make him understand that this country will not be able to make progress until jobs are provided to them."

Rahul Gandhi accused the Centre of failing to address concerns of the youth. "Unemployment rate in India is at a 45-year high, but nothing was spoken about it in Budget or Presidential address by Narendra Modi and Nirmala Sitharaman," Rahul Gandhi said.
