False Hopes By PM Modi Forced Youth To Walk On Agnipath Of Unemployment

Mr. Gandhi has appealed to party leaders and workers not to celebrate his birthday on Sunday.

New Delhi: Amid widespread protests against the new military recruitment policy, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Sunday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said by repeatedly giving false hope of jobs, he has forced the youth to walk on ‘Agnipath’ of unemployment.

He also said 16 crore jobs were to be given in eight years, but the youth only got knowledge on “frying pakoras”.

His comments came on a day  MPs and top leaders of the grand old party, including general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, sat on a “Satyagraha” at the Jantar Mantar in solidarity with the youths protesting against the Agnipath scheme.

“By repeatedly giving false hope of jobs, the prime minister has forced the youth of the country to walk on the ‘Agnipath’ of unemployment,” Rahul Gandhi’s tweet in Hindi.

Mr. Gandhi has appealed to party leaders and workers not to celebrate his birthday on Sunday. In a message to them, he said Saturday night that the youngsters of the country were anguished and protesting on the streets and the Congress workers should stand with them.

Mr. Gandhi turns 52 on Sunday. In a message that was posted on Twitter by the newly appointed  All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary (communications) Jairam Ramesh, Mr. Gandhi said the atmosphere in the country is worrisome.
