After his visit to Ajmer and Pushkar, Rahul addressed a rally in Pokhran, Jaisalmer. He attacked Prime Minister Narendera Modi, saying: “Modi says India was a sleeping giant before he became Prime Minister. This is an insult to all the Indians who have built this nation.”

“Modi stole employment opportunities from India’s youth by taking the deal away from HAL and giving it to his friend Anil Ambani,” Rahul added.

“After winning elections, BJP and PM Modi became arrogant. They believed that there was no need for them to listen to people anymore. This is why BJP will lose the upcoming elections,” he said.
