Workers at the Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress celebrated ‘National Unemployment Day’ on September 17 to express their opposition to the policies of the Narendra Modi government, accusing the policies of the NDA government of causing unemployment in India .
All India Youth Congress Chairman Srinivas BV and Karnataka Youth Congress Chairman Raksha Ramaiah led a protest rally from Bengaluru Station to Freedom Park.
Mr Srinivas said: “Unfortunately, the country observes Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday as ‘the day of unemployment’.” He claimed that youth unemployment rose dramatically after the BJP government led by Mr. Modi came to power in 2014 due to its unbalanced policies.
Mr Ramaiah said members of the Youth Congress would launch a social media campaign and tag the prime minister in their comments on job search. Many people have lost their jobs due to the economic downturn and the COVID-19 pandemic. âSince last year, several thousand thousands of employees working in the clothing, hospitality and tourism sectors have lost their jobs. The state and central governments must find solutions to tackle this problem (of unemployment), âhe said.
On September 13, lawmakers and congressional leaders traveled to the legislative session of the Karnataka Assembly at Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru in bullock carts to highlight the issue of rising prices.
