Rahul has sharpened his attack at the Centre after former France President Francois Hollande claimed that it was the Indian Government which insisted that Anil Ambani-led company Reliance Defence be made an offset partner in the Rafale deal.

"PM'S-KILL India Program," Gandhi tweeted, taking a dig at the government's flagship Skill India campaign.

"Rs 30,000 crore stolen from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and given to a man with no SKILLS in making aircraft. Meanwhile, millions of SKILLED youngsters face the highest unemployment rate in twenty years," he said on Twitter.

He attached a media report quoting a study that the rate of unemployment in India is the highest in the last 20 years.
