“S-Kill India”: Rs 30,000 Crore Given to Man with ‘No Skill’ in Making Aircraft, Says Rahul Gandhi


Rahul Gandhi alleged PM Modi and BJP ran a campaign of “lies and defamation” over the last two decades

NEW DELHI (PTI) —  Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday termed the government’s flagship Skill India campaign “S-Kill India” and alleged Rs 30,000 crore was “stolen” from HAL in the Rafale deal and given to a man with “no skills” to make an aircraft.

He also said the country’s skilled youth are faced with the highest unemployment rate in the last 20 years. His attack came as part of a continued onslaught on the Modi government over the alleged corruption and favouritism in the Rafale fighter jet deal.

“PM’S-KILL India Program,” Gandhi tweeted, taking a dig at the government’s flagship Skill India campaign.

“Rs 30,000 crore stolen from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and given to a man with no SKILLS in making aircraft.

“Meanwhile, millions of SKILLED youngsters face the highest unemployment rate in twenty years,” he said on Twitter.

He attached a media report quoting a study that the rate of unemployment in India is the highest in the last 20 years.

Gandhi had said Tuesday that more facts on the Rafale fighter deal will be out soon, while telling the youth there that they lost jobs as a related contract went to the Reliance Group rather than the state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) which has a unit here.
