Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 'Make in India' campaign, Rahul Gandhi today said the Rs.10 lakh suit he wore during US President Barack Obama's visit was "Make in UK".

Gandhi also accused Modi of working only for only four-five industrialists.

"Modiji said he will give you employment. He talked of Make in India. Crores of rupees were spent in marketing this Make in India. You tell me whether something came out of it.

"He wears Rs 10 lakh suit. Newspapers report that this is not Make in India. That too is Make in UK. And then he tells you about Make in India and employment. Did any youth get employment? No. He told you that Delhi is dirty and clean it. He did not give you job, did not lessen your suffering but put a broom in your hand," Gandhi said at a rally here.

As the election campaign for Delhi reached a crescendo, the Congress Vice President targeted both the Prime Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal, accusing them of "selling big dreams" and not fulfilling promises.

He also rained promises like right to roof for every Delhite, ending contract labour within a week and making electricity cheap.

This the second time during the election campaign, Gandhi had taken a jibe at Modi s clothing.

Last week, he had said that though Modi failed to deliver on the promise of bringing back black money, he wore a suit worth Rs 10 lakh during Obama s visit.

Gandhi, whose party has been accusing Modi of centralising all powers, said that the entire country is being run through the PMO and he (Modi) thinks that he alone can change India.

"This cannot happen. You feel big promises were made and you got nothing. False promises were indeed made. I am telling you, you are not going to get anything from Modi and Kejriwal. Making promises is a very easy. Doing work is difficult," he said.

Referring to the fall in price of crude oil, he said that prices are rising despite that and somebody must be benefitting from the losses of the common man.

"Somebody must be benefitting. Let me tell you, who are benefitting. There are four-five businessmen friends of Modiji, who are benefitting from it.
