SHIVAMOGGA: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that whenever the Congress party talks Mahalakshmi Yojana the Prime Minister of India gets “irritated.”

“The Prime Minister waived off a loan of Rs 16 lakh crore for 22 people. He made 22 billionaires. Now we are going to make crores of people millionaires,” he alleged while addressing a public meeting in Shivamogga.

“Whenever we talk about ‘Mahalakshmi’, the Prime Minister of India gets irritated. Because his billonaire friends are not going to get this money. Our government (if voted to power) is going to confer the right of apprenticeship on the youth. Under the Yuva Nidhi scheme, the government is giving you Rs 3000 per month,” Rahul Gandhi added.

“We (If INDIA bloc is voted to power) are going to implement the first permanent job scheme. You will get a job for one year and Rs 8,500 will be transferred into your bank account per month. And the graduates of Hindustan are going to get world-class training,” he said.
