Rahul Slams Modi On Job Creation, Says ‘Leaked Report Card’ Reveals Disaster

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over employment generation, saying he promised two crore jobs, but five years later a “leaked job creation report card” has revealed a “national disaster”.

Gandhi, in a tweet, also asserted that it was time for the prime minister to go.

Gandhi tagged a media report which cited a report, which said the unemployment rate is highest in 45 years.

Earlier, Congress’ chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also alleged that the unemployment rate is at a 45-year high and said this was the reason why the National Sample Survey Office report on jobs was withheld. This is why the members of National Statistical Commission resigned, he claimed.

Surjewala said India does not want a government that has left the future of the youth in jeopardy. He also cited the media report to make his claims.
