Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of unemployment on Wednesday, saying the "Modi Minar" (Modi Tower) was racing upwards at a breath-taking pace and terming it as a monument dedicated to "incompetence".

"With each passing month the Modi Minar races upwards at a breath-taking pace; a monument dedicated to incompetence," he said on Twitter, using the hashtag "ModiMandiAurMusibat".

Gandhi also attached a bar chart of the unemployment rate in the country, making a comparison between the rates in September (7.16 per cent) and October (8.5 per cent).

The Congress leader has been attacking the prime minister and the BJP-led government on the issue of rising unemployment and slowdown in the economy.

India is facing an economic slowdown with GDP crawling at around 5 per cent and almost all the core sectors posting dismal growth rate. A number of experts have blamed the Modi government’s policies, particularly demonetisation and hurriedly implemented Goods and Services Tax (GST), for the current economic mess.
