[India], Mar 12 (ANI): Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday exuded confidence over winning Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state Gujarat as well as at the national level in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Speaking to media after attending a public rally here, Rahul alleged that the Prime Minister has failed to provide employment to the youth of the country.

"The result (of Lok Sabha elections 2019) will be very good in Gujarat as well as at the national level. There is anger among people. The government has failed completely in providing employment to the youth. The country's unemployment rate was at a 45-year high. The Prime Minister has been trying to distract the country all along," Rahul said.

Rahul asserted that Patidar leader Hardik Patel will win the polls in the forthcoming elections in the state. Hardik officially joined the Congress on Tuesday ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Sunday announced the schedule for 17th Lok Sabha election, which will be held in seven phases beginning April 11. The final phase of voting will take place on May 19. The counting of votes will be done on May 23. (ANI)
