Rahul taunts Modi over claim on cloud cover during air strikes

Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his remarks that cloud cover 'helped' IAF planes evade Pakistani radars during the Balakot air strikes.

Addressing an election rally in Neemuch ahead of the fourth and last phase of Lok Sabha polls in Madhya Pradesh, Rahul also sought to know what did Modi do for the jobless youth.

"Modi ji, whenever it rains in India, do all aircraft disappear from the radar," Rahul said.

The Congress leader also made a veiled reference to Modi's interaction with actor Akshay Kumar in which the PM revealed that he loved mangoes as a child and still loves them.

"Modi ji, you taught (us) how to eat mangoes; now tell the country what you did for jobless youth," he said.

Rahul said his party's proposed minimum income guarantee scheme Nyay will jump start the Indian economy and set right the "injustice" done due to GST and demonetisation.
