Mr Gandhi interacted with farmers and party workers in UP's Kathawra village where he said that the prime minister should make it clear if he is unable to address issues like unemployment and the Congress will come and do so in six months.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to stop wasting time of the countrymen and start giving employment to the youth as promised," said the Congress leader on the first day of his visit this afternoon.
"The youth of the country feel they are not getting opportunity to work for the nation...their anger is increasing and...the farmers are committing suicide," he said.
Charging the BJP with ignoring schemes like food park and others projects meant for the development of Amethi, he said, "It is unfortunate that the BJP has harmed the interest of people of Amethi...this is wrong. Their (BJP's) thinking is like this only...but I will fight for you all."
Referring to schemes such as Make in India and Start up campaigns, Mr Gandhi said these will have no meaning if there is no talk about 'Make in Amethi' and 'Make in UP'.
On the second day of his tour, Mr Gandhi will meet people at Munshiganj guest house and would later address party workers at Mohanganj and a conference of partymen.
On Friday, he will meet party workers at his mother, Sonia Gandhi's Lok Sabha constituency, Bhuamau in Rae Bareli before returning to Delhi.
