Did Congress President Rahul Gandhi just admit that UPA failed to generate jobs?

Days after advocating ISIS Rojgar Yojana, where he equated ISIS terrorists to ‘poor unemployed youth’, he has now upped his game. He has claimed that the reason people like Prime Minister Modi and US President Donald Trump got votes is because people were angry due to unemployment and had much expectations from them. Interacting with Indian Journalists’ Association in London, the Congress President said that people support Modi and Trump because they are ‘angry because they don’t have a job’.

For someone who aspires to be Prime Minister of India in 2019, Rahul Gandhi needs a refresher course. For ten years before Modi got elected, the UPA led by Congress, where his mother Sonia Gandhi is the chairperson, was in power. That senior Congress leader Dr. Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister. So essentially, if what he is saying about people voting for Modi and Trump because they are angry due to unemployment, it is probably because UPA failed to generate jobs.

This statement of his came a days after he embarrassed himself on an international platform by admitting his ignorance on Doklam issue, while constantly criticising and questioning the government on the same on all forums.

This is not the first time Congress’ Prime Ministerial candidate has made a self goal. Earlier, in a bid to attack the PM earlier, Gandhi had inadvertently implied that the Nirav Modi-PNB scam was approved by Congress in 2011 when the UPA was in power. In January this year, to appear ‘woke’ on rising inequality, Gandhi ended up sharing an article which had damning indictment of UPA rule itself.
