3 years of Narendra Modi government: Congress Leader Kamal Nath launches an attack on Bharatiya Janata Party, says “BJP spending Rs 2,000 cr on celebrations; 3 years of Modi government can be summed up as ‘Bhashan aur aashwaasan, yeh hai mera shaasan’.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India’s longest Dhola Sadiya Bridge in Assam today. May 26 also marks the third anniversary of the NDA government rule after PM Narendra Modi led the Bharatiya Janata Party to a massive victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections.
He said, “Bravado, rhetoric and hyperbole are the hallmark of the years of Modi government. Peddling lies and celebrating non-performance, propaganda and platitude are its recognition. It has been only ‘bhashan’ (speeches) and ‘aswashan’ (assurances).” He further added, “The biggest challenge faced by the country is unemployment and thanks to this government, employment is at a 50 year low and lowest in the last seven years,” according to an IANS report.
The former union minister further talked about job creation and said, “Against Modi’s promise of 2 crore jobs annually, only 1.35 lakh jobs were created in 2015. We need to create over 34 crore jobs by 2028 but what is the state of domestic investment and bank credit, both are at their historic lowest.” He also said, “The IT sector is facing joblessness and will be losing 20,000 jobs annually. We want to know the government’s plans to counter disruption in employment creation due to innovation in technology.”
Kamal Nath concluded his media address by saying that, “we demand a white paper on the government’s employment strategy. The country is not interested in speeches and assurances, we want this government to come out with hard facts on how it plans to create jobs for the next two years.”
