Rahul Gandhi alleged that due to the decision of demonetization and GST, the purchasing power of people was blighted, which in turn, led to a drop in production of goods, resulting in unemployment.

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi Friday said the minimum income guarantee scheme the party has envisaged will put the country’s economy back on track.

Addressing a poll rally in Ahmednagar district, Gandhi hit out at the Narendra Modi government over what he called the “highest” unemployment rate in the country in 45 years, particularly in the backdrop of the ruling BJP’s 2014 pre-poll promise of providing two crore jobs a year.

He assured that the 22 lakh vacant posts in government services will be filled within a year if his party is voted to power in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

The Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY), an anti-poverty programme, is part of the Congress’s manifesto for the 2019 polls.
