Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying that he should hand over the power to Congress if he is unable to provide employment to youths and redress problems of farmers.

Rahul said that Congress will take only 6 months to accomplish these tasks.

Rahul visited Amethi after six months. He was there during the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections which happened six months before.

Congress vice president also slammed the government over GST, saying the tax rates are high and the slabs multiple.

He asked the prime minister to review the GST as its aim is ‘one-nation, one-tax’ and emphasised that the tax rate should not be more than 18 per cent.

Gandhi, who arrived here on a three-day visit, said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to stop wasting time of the countrymen and start giving employment to the youth as promised.”

He said the issues of the farmers and the youth are the two main concerns of the country and “if Modiji cannot address these, he should say so and Congress will come and do his work in six months.”
