Narendra Modi on Sunday accused Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi of cheating youths by promising them jobs and asked the young voters to remove the "mother and son" UPA government from the Centre.
Taking a jibe at UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, Modi said youth of the country never received jobs, but "jijaji" (brother-in-law) received it.
"During the last Lok Sabha elections the mother and son government had promised jobs to 10 crore youth but they failed to do so. They cheated (the youth of) the country as well as Chhattisgarh," Modi said, addressing a rally in Bilaspur district headquarters of Chhattisgarh.
"Since the day, I was nominated as the BJP's prime ministerial candidate, I am engaged in searching for solutions to problems of every state, including Chhattisgarh. For 24 hours, I think about solutions to Maoism, unemployment and poverty. Contrary to this, the Congress always thinks about a solution to a problem called Modi," he said.
It is clear that the Congress would not be able to even open its account in many states during this general election, while it would also fail to touch the double digit mark in any state, he said.
Without naming Congress leader Digvijay Singh, Modi said that under him, MP was known as a sick state or a "Bimaru" (sick) state.
In Nashik, addressing a poll meeting for BJP candidates A T Nana Patil and Rakshya Khadse from Jalgaon and Raver Lok Sabha constituencies respectively, Modi attacked the NCP chief, saying "since Sharad Pawar came to know the results of the Lok Sabha polls earlier, he went to the Rajya Sabha."
He questioned why Jalgaon's cotton growers keep going to Gujarat to sell their cotton.
