Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that Modi had failed to provide the two crore jobs every year that he promised, and then enacting policies that “destroyed India’s economic structure”, leaving many people without jobs. “He sold them a very big dream. The truth is 14 crore people have been made jobless by Narendra Modiji’s policies.”
Among the bad policies listed by Gandhi are the demonetisation of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes, poor implementation of the Goods and Services Tax, and the lockdown imposed to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The Congress leader claimed that the government has destroyed the “economic structure” of the country.
Gandhi said his party’s youth wing, the Indian Youth Congress, will take up the matter and organise outreach programmes under the “Rozgar Do” (Give Employment) Campaign. Congress Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala also tweeted, claiming that every Indian youth has been saying: “Modi, give us employment”. “It is the right of youth that they get employment,” he said in a video. “That way both they and the country can progress.”
On July 27, the Congress leader insisted that the Chinese have occupied Indian land and denying this was “anti-national”. On the other hand, he said, bringing the truth to the notice of the people is the patriotic thing to do. At least 20 Indian soldiers died and 76 were wounded in a clash with their Chinese counterparts in Galwan Valley in Ladakh on June 15.
