It’s been three years of the BJP government whose main election promise was to provide employment opportunity to people. But the government has miserably failed as there is hardly any reform. And now, BJP President Amit Shah had said that the government have tried to give new perspective to employment but it is not possible to provide employment to everyone in a country of 125 crore people.
“The Narendra Modi government is the “most decisive and transparent” the country has seen, without a single case of corruption against it, and its rule in the last three years has ended casteism, family rule and appeasement politics,” he said addressing a press conference to mark the third anniversary of the government.
Shah further stated that what could not be attained in the last 70 years was achieved by this government in this short span of time.
But talking about the concerns over unemployment, he said it was not possible to give jobs to every person in a country of 125 crore. “We have tried to give new perspective to employment as it is not possible to provide employment to everyone in a country of 125 crore people. We are promoting self-employment and the government has made eight crore people self-employed.”
His statement came amid attacks by the opposition on the government’s employment numbers. “Modi government had promised to give employment to two crore youths annually but actually it had been able to give jobs to only 1.35 lakh people in 2015 and in 2016 too it could give jobs to about as many people,” Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said on Friday.
