New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday claimed that 27,000 youth lose their jobs every day in Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government regime.

"Prime Minister Modi talks about employment. He said he will provide two crore jobs every year. After GST and demonetisation he destroyed small and medium businesses, made lakhs of youth unemployed. In Narendra Modi's India, 27,000 youth get unemployed in 24 hours every day," Rahul said while addressing a rally here.

"25 crore people will benefit from NYAY scheme. Through demonetisation and 'Gabbar Singh Tax', Prime Minister Narendra Modi took away money from pockets of people. Now we will do remonetisation. NYAY scheme is Congress' surgical strike on poverty. This will remove poverty from India. No other country has done something like this till date," he added.

Rahul even criticised Prime Minister Modi for not greeting his 'guru' and senior BJP leader LK Advani.

"Narendra Modi talks about religion, but see what he has done with LK Advani. He should be ashamed. Advani ji ne Modi ji ko khada kiya, aur Narendra Modi ne do minute me Advani ji ko pare kiya. He does not even greet him and starts looking at somewhere else. Then he talks about religion. There is nothing else left to say," he said.
