Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that the country doesn't run on “false promises and speeches” and the PM should start working as only one year of his term is left.

“The country doesn't run on false promises and speeches. Modiji, start providing employment to youths and right price to farmers. Still one year left,” said Rahul while addressing a rally in Karnataka’s Mangaluru during his Jana Aashirwada Yatre.

During his rally in the poll-bound South Indian state, the Gandhi scion also accused PM Modi of “corruption” and snatching jobs from Karnataka’s youth.

“Rafale deal was taken away from a public-sector enterprise in Bengaluru and given to PM Modi's friend. This stole the jobs from Bengaluru youth. This is called corruption,” he said.

The Congress president also alleged that the Prime Minister helped his industrialist friends to turn their black money into white during demonetisation.

“PM Modi helped his industrialist friends to turn their black money into white when the common people had to stand in queues to exchange their hard-earned money,” he said.

During his visit, Rahul also visited a Rosario Church and sought blessings at Sri Gokarnanatheshwara Temple in Mangaluru. He also visited Ullal dargah in the port city.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also accompanied the Congress President during the visit.
