Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over record unemployment saying the government should focus on eradicating unemployment, and not on ‘jumlas’.
“The wrong policies of the Modi government and neglect towards the youth have brought a tsunami of unemployment in the country. Educated youth, with degree in hand, is forced to wander from door to door. Today the country has the highest unemployment in 45 years,” the former Congress President wrote on his Facebook.
“The number of registrations of unemployed people has already doubled. With the dream of serving the country for years, and joining the army, the youth are now being forced to become ‘Agniveer’ on a 4-year contract. Vacant posts in the central government are not being filled, employment is not getting in the private sector also,” Rahul Gandhi said, accusing the Prime Minister of drowning “the youth in the pit of despair”.
“It is the duty of the BJP government to provide employment to the youth. The government should focus on eradicating unemployment, not on ‘jumlas’,” the Gandhi scion said.
“Stop playing with the future of the country, Prime Minister,” Mr Gandhi said.
