PM Narendra Modi slammed Rahul Gandhi, accusing him of being anti-business.

While addressing a public meeting in Jharkhand's Jamshedpur on Sunday, PM Narendra Modi took a veiled dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi referring to him as 'Shehzada'. PM Modi slammed Rahul, accusing him of being anti-business. He said the 'Shehzada' keeps opposing business industries, businessmen and investments due to which investors don't want to invest in Congress-ruled states. He added investors would think that such mindset also exists in states ruled by Congress allies.

What will happen to the youths of those states?...all investors who come to me say that they won't go to these states because of their ideology against them, businessmen are verbally abused their...investors will think that since 'Shehzada' has this kind of thoughts, his ally parties would have same thoughts as well," said PM Modi as quoted by news agency ANI.
