"Yuvraj himself is nowhere in Indian politics": BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan takes jibe at Rahul Gandhi

Sambhalpur: Union Minister and BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan on Monday took a jibe at Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, saying that "Yuvraj" is nowhere in the country's politics or the minds of the people.
Pradhan took a swipe at the Congress leader while reacting to his previous remark on BJP's manifesto, Sankalp Patra, wherein he said that two words, "inflation and unemployment," were missing from the promises made in the poll document.
"Congress party and its leader, 'Yuvraj' Rahul Gandhi himself, are nowhere in Indian politics or in people's mind. In these 10 years of the Modi government, we have won the trust of the poor," he said while speaking to ANI.
Coming down heavily on the Congress, the union minister further said that the opposition party will dwindle to more seats than in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
"Those who ruled the generations and for decades in this country and states, their manifesto is their failure. When they were in power, they betrayed people and hence, they're in opposition, they'll go down even more," he added.
Dharmendra Pradhan will be contesting from the Sambalpur seat in Odisha.
In 2019, the BJP won 303 while the Congress bagged 52 seats.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday slammed the BJP "for not focusing on inflation and unemployment in its manifesto".
In a post on social media, he said that inflation and unemployment were "missing" from BJP's manifesto and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech
He said in his X post (in Hindi), "The BJP does not even want to discuss the most important issues related to people's lives. INDIA's plan is very clear -- recruitment for 30 lakh posts and a permanent job of Rs 1 lakh to every educated youth."
"This time, the youth is not going to fall into the trap of PM Modi. He will now strengthen the hands of Congress and bring 'employment revolution' in the country," he said.
The BJP released its poll manifesto on Sunday with the tagline "Modi ki Guarantee," with a focus on more development, women's welfare and a roadmap for "Viksit Bharat" (developed India). The manifesto released by the party promised 'One Nation One Election' and "single electoral roll."
The Lok Sabha polls in India are scheduled to take place from April 19, 2024, to June 1, 2024, to choose the 543 representatives for the 18th Lok Sabha. These elections will be conducted over seven phases, with the outcome being declared on June 4.
