Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his claim in an interview that his inputs had assisted the execution of Balakot airstrikes.

Addressing an election rally here ahead of the seventh and last phase of Lok Sabha polls in Madhya Pradesh, Gandhi said: "Modi Ji, whenever it rains in India, do all aircraft disappear from the radar."

The Congress leader also made a veiled reference to Modi's interaction with actor Akshay Kumar in which the PM revealed that he loved mangoes as a child and still loves them.

"Modi ji, you taught (us) how to eat mangoes; now tell the country what you did for jobless youth," he said.

Gandhi said his party's proposed minimum income guarantee scheme Nyay will jump-start the Indian economy and set right the "injustice" done due to GST and demonetisation.

The economy has been left in the doldrums due to flawed GST implementation and demonetisation.

"The Nyay scheme will benefit five crore families who earn less than Rs 12,000 per month. This means Rs 72,000 will be deposited in the bank accounts of beneficiaries annually and Rs 3.6 lakh in five years," he said.

Demonetisation and GST have left lakhs of people unemployed and small and medium enterprises have been left in the lurch, Gandhi said.

"The Nyay scheme will ensure that people start purchasing goods, while small and medium businesses can start manufacturing the goods resulting in employment opportunities," he said.

Nyay is not an option but a necessity, Gandhi said.
