Last year, one crore youth have lost jobs, says Rahul Gandhi

PM Modi had promised 2 crore jobs, but last year our youth lost 1 crore jobs. Wherever PM goes he talks of CAA, NRC but the biggest issue of unemployment is not mentioned, PM doesn't even speak a word on it, says Rahul Gandhi in Jaipur.

Shameful that economic growth has dropped since UPA was in power, says Rahul Gandhi at Jaipur rally.

Youth are India's biggest asset, country today is wasting this asset. India growing at 2.5% if old parameters are used. It's a shame, says Rahul.

Even today ask an 8-year-old, did demonetisation benefit you or harm you? Child will say harm.Earlier we were competing with China but now sadly, China has left us far behind.The whole world knows if there is anyone who can rival China,it is India's youth, says Rahul.

India was known for its unity, harmony and brotherhood. PM Modi destroyed India's image before the world, says Rahul.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi couldn't understand GST, says Rahul.

Modi tarnished India's image as country of peace, putting off investors, says Rahul Gandhi.

Don’t let your voice be suppressed; raise questions on unemployment, India’s future, says Rahul

Citing Adnan Sami's case, BSP urges Centre to bring oppressed Muslims into CAA ambit

Reiterating its demand for a review of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati on Tuesday asked why the government could not shelter the oppressed Muslims of the neighbouring country when it has conferred Padma Shri on Pakistan-born singer Adnan Sami.

In a tweet in Hindi, she said, "When the BJP government can also honour the Pakistan born singer Adnan Sami with citizenship and the Padma Shri then why can't the oppressed Pakistani Muslims not be given shelter under the CAA here like Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, etc? Therefore, it would be better if the Centre reviews CAA." Sami, who was born in London to a Pakistan Air Force veteran, had applied for Indian citizenship in 2015 and became a citizen of the country in January 2016.
