Shajapur, March 5: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused his government of misleading the youth, saying that the PM wants the young generation to only chant 'Jai Shri Ram and starve to death'. Addressing a gathering in Madhya Pradesh's Shajapur during his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, the Congress MP also advocated for the caste-based census and said that conducting the survey will ensure social justice for the people.

"Our policy is very clear-- that is a revolutionary step towards social justice that is only caste-based census...the Congress has done only revolutionary work. It fought for the country's independence when they (BJP) went lost, where they were at that time. Be it, the green revolution, white or digital, all the revolutionary works have been done by Congress...but the PM wants our youths to be glued to their phones for the whole day, chant Jai Shri Ram and starve to death (bhukhe raho aur mar jao)," he said.

Earlier in the day the BJP launched an all-out attack against the Congress' ally DMK for a speech made by former Minister A Raja in Madurai. Amit Malviya, the head of Bharatiya Janata Party's IT cell, criticised A Raja, accusing him of advocating for the Balkanisation of India and making derogatory comments about Lord Ram, Manipuris, and the idea of India as a nation.
