Unemployment reason for Modi, Trump's rise to power: Rahul

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-week U.S. tour, slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again and claimed that "Make in India" is moving in a wrong direction; claiming that India is still facing a huge deficiency in job opportunities. "I feel that the concept should be targetting the smaller businesses".

He added that one of the central challenges in India is the politics of polarisation. "There are spaces where we would agree with them", he said while pointing out how the economic policies of both the Congress and BJP are nearly identical. He claimed that almost 30,000 youngsters come into the job market every day, but there are only 450 jobs.

On 4 September, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi participated in a direct dialogue with party members from across all 182 constituencies, in keeping with the party's focus on strengthening and revving up the organisation's ground machinery. "We will give befitting reply to Pakistan", he said.

During his interaction at Princeton, he also said the performance of India and China would determine how the world would fundamentally be reshaped.

Speaking on the unemployment problem, Rahul said that it is one of the major threats to the growth of the nation.

Rahul, while addressing students at the Princeton University on Tuesday, said that historically, India's strength has always been in its ability to embrace people.

The BJP can't claim Rahul is irrelevant if they feel the need to field senior Cabinet Ministers to counter what he said in Berkeley.

"Those same people who got angry with us because we couldn't deliver on those 30,000 jobs (a day) are going to get angry with Mr Modi". It's not for me to say that China should be democratic or not. In the 21st century, if you leave people out of this vision, you are asking for trouble. Rahul raked up many issues that India is facing today.

"Does India have a similar vision?" Where you pick one community over another, you create spaces for other people to come in.

"To me, that is where the real danger lies".

He added that India needs to work on providing adequate education and health facilities to all its people, irrespective of whether they are rich or poor.

Asked about the Congress's Policy Planning group's visit to Kashmir, Deputy Chief Minister said that as far as the democracy of the country is concerned, everybody has right to meet people.

"India has historically maintained balance.it has had a relationship with the United States, with China, with Russian Federation, with Iran". It is a deeper problem, so we have to first accept it as a problem and then we have to unite at solving it.
