"The reputation and image that India had in the world were that it is a country of brotherhood, love and unity, while Pakistan was known for hatred and divisiveness. This image of India has been damaged by Narendra Modi. Today, India is considered as the rape capital of the world," he said.

Further targeting the government on demonetisation, Gandhi said, "Even today ask an 8-year-old, did demonetisation benefit you or harm you? The child will say harm. Earlier we were competing with China but now sadly, China has left us far behind. The whole world knows if there is anyone who can rival China, it is India's youth."

The Congress leader said that during the UPA government India's GDP was growing at 9 percent but now it is growing only at 2.5 per cent. "During UPA, India grew at 9 per cent. The entire world was looking towards us. Today, you have different parameters to measure GDP and you have 5% rate, if you use old parameters, then India is growing at 2.5 per cent," the Congress MP said while addressing a Yuva Aakrosh Rally in Jaipur.
