Rahul's Mann ki Baat for Modi: Talk jobs, Doklam, rapes

Speak up on Doklam, creating jobs and stopping rapes, Congress President Rahul Gandhi told Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who invited topics for his monthly 'Mann ki Baat' radio programme.

"Dear Narendra Modi, since you've requested some ideas for your MannKiBaat monologue, tell us about how you plan to get our youth jobs, get the Chinese out of 'Dhoka-Lam', stop the rapes in Haryana," Gandhi said in tweets dripping with sarcasm.

Gandhi's sharp attack came as the Prime Minister reached out to Twitterati inviting suggestions for the 'Mann ki Baat' programme.

"It is always a delight to read your insightful ideas and inputs for #MannKiBaat. What are your suggestions for 2018's first 'Mann Ki Baat' on 28th January. Let me know on the NM Mobile App," Modi said.

Pun and sarcasm

The Congress President punned on Doklam using the word 'Dhoka-Lam' to suggest an apparent betrayal by China. Reports had it that Chinese troops had built permanent structures, helipads and watch towers in the Doklam plateau within 10 km of the Indian border.

Congress claimed that the alleged construction activity by Chinese troops ran contrary to the Modi government's assertions in Parliament that both India and China had agreed to "expeditious disengagement" in the Doklam plateau.

Congress has also been targeting the Modi government on his "failure" to create jobs and prevent crimes against women.
