Congress president Rahul Gandhi, while addressing public during Maha Sankalp rally in Bikaner Rajasthan, said that the youth are seeking for employment opportunities to earn their livelihood.
“The youth of this country want employment to earn their livelihood and compete against countries like China and not a gift given by a govt, it’s the right of the youth,” Rahul Gandhi said on the second day of his two-day visit to the election-bound state.
Taking a dig at the BJP government in Centre and in Rajasthan he said, “PM and CM’s duty is to listen to the needs of the people. We will not make false promises. Any promise made by us will be delivered.”
Rahul Gandhi, attacking PM Modi, said that he must break his silence on violence against migrant workers in Gujarat.
“Youth in Gujarat are being beaten up and sent back by saying ‘you belong to Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar you don’t belong here’. Narendra Modi doesn’t even utter a word.”
Mr Gandhi also mentioned that farmers in the rule of BJP are suffering. They do not receive fair price for their crops.

On Tuesday, Mr Gandhi attended a meeting with the Youth Congress workers in Jaipur. He urged the workers to take the issue of “corruption” in the Rafale aircraft deal to the village level as the party gears up for the Assembly elections in December.
Rajasthan Youth Congress president Ashok Chandna said, “The prime minister is favouring top industrialists and not paying heed to farmers and the poor and this is what Rahul Gandhi wants the Youth Congress to tell people across the country.”
Meanwhile, as the Rajasthan elections are scheduled to be held on December 7, Rahul Gandhi started his rally by visiting Mania village in Dholpur which is the home turf of BJP Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. On Tuesday, he addressed public meetings in Dholpur, Bharatpur and Dausa districts.
