GOA: The unemployment crisis in the country has put the future of India’s youth in jeopardy and Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to ensure that the Centre takes steps to create employment opportunities for Indian youth, Congress said. State Congress president Girish Chodankar said that Modi should keep his promise to create 2 crore jobs every year so that youth are not left in the lurch.
“Unemployment has risen so much today that people are suffering. We urge Modi to create the 12 crore jobs for the last six years and employ all those who lost jobs because of the faulty policies of his government,” said Chodankar as part of a nationwide campaign to celebrate Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday as National Unemployment Day.
The party claimed that in 2020, 21 million salaried Indians lost jobs in five months because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown imposed to combat the pandemic. “Faulty economic policies and mishandling of Covid led to the current situation. Of all the problems plaguing India right now, Modiji this one begs your urgent attention,” said Chodankar.
