Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “trying to distract the nation and divide people”, and challenged him to go to a university and tell students what he is going to do to improve India’s economy. Rahul Gandhi’s statement comes even as retail inflation jumped sharply to 7.35 per cent in December 2019, surpassing the RBI's comfort level, mainly due to high food prices, a government data showed on Monday.
“Narendra Modi should have courage to tell youngsters why Indian economy has become a disaster...He doesn't have guts to stand in front of students. I challenge him to go to any university, stand there without police and tell people what he's going to do for this country,” he said after an Opposition parties meeting called by the Congress.
“Instead of addressing the problem of the youth, Narendra Modi is trying to distract the nation and divide people. Voice of the youth is legitimate, it should not be suppressed, the government should listen to it,” Rahul Gandhi added.
