New Delhi [India], February 2 (ANI): Slamming the central government over the faulty policies, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said India is facing the highest level of unemployment in 50 years under the current Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government at the Centre.
Rahul Gandhi said, “Government speaks of providing employment. 3 crore youth lost their jobs in 2021. Today India is facing the highest unemployment in 50 years. You talk of Made-in-India, Start-Up India, but the youth did not get the employment they were supposed to. The one they had has disappeared. The government pushed 23 crore people back into poverty.”The Congress MP said the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had pulled 27 crore people out of poverty in 10 years.
“There was not a single word on unemployment in the President’s Address. The youth across the country is looking for jobs. The government is unable to provide them with one. They talk about ‘Made-in-India’:1618145006013,. But there cannot be Made-in-India today. The matter has ended because who are the people involved in Made-in-India? Small and medium industry, unorganized sector – whom the Centre has finished. Made-in-India is not going to take place,” said Rahul Gandhi while addressing Lok Sabha during the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address.RELATED: Chinese language epidemic preventions cases had declined alongside harsher provincial restrictions, management work group heads for Tajikistan
