On the second day of visit to Amethi, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi advised PM Narendra Modi to focus on the two main problems- employment and farmers' issues.
Speaking to media, Rahul Gandhi, said: "Here is a real serious problem in India today, that we are unable to provide jobs to our youngsters and farmers are committing suicides."
"China produces 50,000 jobs every single day. India, under Modi's Make In India, Start Up/Stand Up India, produces 450 jobs," he said.
He further said that instead of excuses and saying pessimists are creating an atmosphere, 'PM Modi should stand up and say we have not managed to deliver what promised'.
Rahul Gandhi urged PM Modito deliver what he promised like 'a true leader'.
He said, " If Modi cannot solve the problems let Congress party will do the work. We will show that work in six months.""I am happy to note that our BJP friends are out to re- inaugurate these projects started by us...but I am happy that we initiated these works for the people of Amethi," Gandhi said.
He was having an informal chat with newspersons in Tiloi on the second day of his three-day visit here.
Gandhi was seeking to take the wind out of the sails of BJP chief Amit Shah, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Union minister Smriti Irani who are scheduled to visit Amethi on October 10 to launch a number of new projects in Amethi.
Giving details of the works done by him, the Congress MP mentioned projects like a hospital worth Rs 90 crore, FM radio, sainik school, Rajiv Gandhi aviation university at Fursatganj and Institute of Hotel Management.
The Amethi district administration, on September 30, had requested Rahul Gandhi to change the date of his visit. Stating that police personnel were already employed to maintain law and order during Durga Puja and Muharram, the administration had expressed difficulty in providing security for him.
