                  "While the overall unemployment rate is 5 per cent, it is 5.2 per cent for the OBCs, the minister said." This is from " The unemployment rate was 4.9 per cent in 2013, 4.7 per cent in 2012 and 3.8 per cent in 2011."Due blatant pro capitalist economic policy of BJP Government! More aggressive than that of Congress in serving the masters!

                      Modi u r a good leader but he needs to work & care for every community rather focussing on part of communities.

                        Admitted unemployment is rising. Unrest in Kishans is rising, production ,GDP and export are decreasing, People are unhappy over the result of monetisation. Theses are the sings of failure of Govt.

                            The minister must be appreciated for admittance and giving the factual figures.We all know that the rate of increase of unemployment is directly proportional to the rate of increase of human potion.Let us control the potion first and then waste our time in calculating such facts and figures,since it is useless to talk of unemployment unless potion is checked.

                                  The raising unemployment issue consistently raised by Shiva Sena after DeMonetisation, the government has miserably failed in all its economic policies and implementation.
