"There is more discussion about Rahul Gandhi than other problems at Congress' 'Chintan Shivir'," Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

He said India has suffered a deficit of good governance under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

"Good governance suffered most under the UPA. Rampant corruption, shielding corrupt with impunity, gross inaction and policy paralysis is the hallmark of UPA governance," said Prasad.

On Congress chief Sonia Gandhi raising concerns about creating more jobs for youth, Prasad said: "Employment has declined big time under the UPA government in the last nine years."

"The gross domestic product (GDP) rate has come down to 5.3 percent and there has been a decline in industrial production, manufacturing, import, export and investment, while BJP-ruled states are recording 10 percent growth," he said.
