    "Narendra Modi has destroyed India's image and reputation in the world. Today, India is known as the rape capital but Narendra Modi does not talk about this," he said at the rally at Jaipur's Ramniwas Garden.

    He said when the youth raise questions over unemployment and ask Modi why he "destroyed" India's image, "you are answered with bullets and are suppressed".

    He said India's biggest asset and strength are the youth, who are capable of competing with China but the government is wasting this asset.

    Earlier, Rajasthan Chief minister Ashok Gehlot, Deputy Chief Minister and state Congress chief Sachin Pilot received Gandhi at the Jaipur airport. Before addressing the rally, he met some other state ministers as well.
