In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of unemployment, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday said the Prime Minister is handing over appointment letters to thousands when “millions of youth” arein search for jobs.
While Mr Modi came to power with a promise of creating two crore new jobs every year, Mr Kharge alleged that it took eight years for the BJP-led Centre to even think of filling 10 lakh existing central government vacancies.
“Today, when millions of youth search for jobs, PM is handing over some thousand appointment letters!” the Congress president said in one of his several tweets on unemployment.
He said Mr Modi is holding ‘Rozgar Melas’, handing out appointment letters, and has addressed the melas giving 75,000 letters in Delhi, 13,000 in Gujarat, and 3,000 in Jammu and Kashmir.
Rural India is facing the unprecedented challenge of unemployment. The average Rural Unemployment in the past 6 years is 7.02% (CMIE)

Our youth is forced to wait for years to get a Govt job. All this is because of lack of will & false promises by the BJP.

The Congress chief saidrural India is facing the unprecedented challenge of employment, with average rural unemployment in the past 6 years is 7.02 per cent according to the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE).
He said the situation is so desperate that for 40,000 posts under the Agnipath Scheme, the government received 35 lakh applications. “For a few thousand posts in Uttar Pradesh, 37 lakh applications were received. Post-graduates and PHDs are applying for jobs well below their qualifications,”Mr Kharge claimed.
Higher Education Institutions (including IITs, IIMs, and Central Uni) have more than 61,000 vacant teaching and non-teaching posts.
🔹Central Universities & Delhi Univ – 20,291
🔹IIT Bombay- 962
🔹Allahabad Univ-1287

He added that lakhs of vacancies currently exist in the public sector, including in the Armed Forces, Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs), central government schools, higher education institutions, health institutions, PSUs, PSU Banks, police and courts.
Modi Sarkar has failed to generate new employment opportunities for the youth!

We don't hear 'Make in India' ‘Skill India’ anymore !

What happened to these programmes & their slogans?

Where are the 16 Cr jobs that you promised? मौन क्यों हैं, मोदी जी?
