Mumbai: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi targeted PM Narendra Modi for ignoring real issues and said that sending a rocket to the moon will not feed the youth of the country.
Addressing an election rally here, Rahul said, “Crores of the youth of the country are unemployed. When the election comes, they don’t talk about it. The youth are saying they have no future. On the other hand, he (Modi) will look towards the moon. India has sent a rocket. It is good.”
In the context of Chandrayaan-2, India’s moon mission, Gandhi continued: “Congress had established ISRO. The rocket did not go there in two days. It took many years, and Narendra Modi Ji is taking advantage of it. Moon. But sending a rocket. Did not feed the youth of the country.”
The Congress leader said that he has destroyed the Indian economy. “They will talk about Kashmir, Article 370, the moon but they will not speak a word on the real issues,” he said.
The Congress party is contesting the Maharashtra Assembly elections in alliance with the NCP. The state will go to polls on October 21. The counting of votes will take place on October 24.
