‘Their politics will be over as soon as they give employment’

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi addressed a public rally at Matia Mahal in Delhi today. Excerpts:

  • Whoever thinks that this country can move forward without unity, love and brotherhood, then he has no understanding about this country and its history.
  • Today, the youth of the country do not differentiate between Hindu and Muslim. They love each other. They might be angry but there’s a difference between hate and anger.
  • Oxygen of Modi’s politics is unemployment . Therefore, they do not provide employment to the youth. Their politics will be over as soon as they give employment.
  • India cannot progress without Hindu-Muslim-Sikh-Christian unity.
  • If India and Delhi cannot provide employment to their youth, then the violence and hatred that exists today will grow manifold. Unemployment is a big challenge and only Congress can give employment to youth.
