Chandigarh, September 17th
Local Youth Congress activists today celebrated Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday as a day of unemployment. Activists staged a protest reflecting the anger and resentment of the youth towards the BJP government led by Modi.
Selling pakoras dressed in his graduation gowns, Manoj Lubana, president of the Chandigarh Youth Congress, said it was a symbolic protest highlighting the plight of students who spend thousands of rupees to have access to a good education. Although they are qualified, they have no job opportunities and in desperation they have to resort to selling “pakoras” and “samosas”. Modi had betrayed the confidence of young people by not offering any job opportunities and India had reached an unprecedented level of unemployment.
“The national unemployment rate has steadily fallen to record levels and there are currently 15 lakh fewer job openings in August 2021 compared to July 2021. The national unemployment rate has also jumped to 8, 2% against 6.9% last month. The record rise in unemployment and the empty job promises of the ‘Bharatiya Jumla Party’ are now fully exposed, ”he said.
