Earlier in the day, the Congress president accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not wanting to fill 22 lakh vacant posts in various departments of the government.
“Some 22 lakh jobs are vacant in the government. PM did not want to fill these vacant posts and only wants to help his friends. We will give these 22 lakh jobs in one year and 10 lakh jobs in panchayats,” he added.
Gandhi said that the prime minister fooled the country and took money from the pocket of the people. “Modi has fooled you and made you stand in queues telling you that it is fighting against corruption and black money. He fooled the country and took money from your pocket for a ‘chor’ like Anil Ambani,” he said.
This time, Rahul Gandhi is contesting from two Lok Sabha seats — Amethi in UP and Wayanad in Kerala. Union minister Smriti Irani is once again challenging Rahul Gandhi from Amethi.
Amethi will go to polls in the fifth phase on May 5.
