While addressing the press during the launch, Rahul Gandhi talked about the biggest problem of youth, which is unemployment.
“Forget job creation, today the youth has lost jobs. This is happening because all the work is diverted to 2-3 industrialists. So, Congress has decided to work on the creation of jobs,” he said.
