Indian Youth Congress marks PM’s birthday as ‘National Unemployment Day’: The Tribune India

New Delhi, September 17

The Indian Youth Congress marked Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 71st birthday on Friday as “National Unemployment Day”, alleging that the Modi government had “lied for the past seven years in the name of jobs”.

Calling the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) “Halla Bol” program a “revolution” against unemployment, IYC National Chairman Srinivas BV said unemployment in the country had increased significantly under the regime of Modi.

“Today, on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday, a revolution against unemployment is taking place. Chacha Nehru’s birthday is celebrated as Children’s Day and Prime Minister Modi’s birthday who put India out of work is celebrated as National Unemployment Day.

“The Prime Minister increased the unemployment rate instead of increasing the GDP rate. The country’s GDP is at an all-time low and unemployment is skyrocketing. Instead of cheating the youth of the country, Modi should provide jobs,” he said.

The IYC National Leader further said that the Prime Minister should understand that employment is not provided by rhetoric, “you have to work to provide employment and policies have to be implemented”.

“The young people of the country need jobs, not ‘jumla’ (thing). Modi had said ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ and had done ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vinash’,” he alleged.

The event saw the participation of several young Congress workers including National General Secretary and Delhi Leader Bhaiya Pawar, National Secretary and Co-Delhi Leader Khushboo Sharma, Mukesh Kumar and Youth Congress President from Delhi Pradesh, Ranvijay Singh Lochav.

“The inflation chart in the country is up and the employment chart is down under the current regime at the Centre. The BJP government has failed to deliver on its promise to provide jobs, and the BJP has betrayed the country’s youth.

“On Prime Minister Modi’s birthday, IYC members staged a 200-foot-long flag march,” said IYC National Media Officer Rahul Rao. PTI
