JAMMU, Sept 11: Krishna Allavaru, AICC Incharge Indian Youth Congress (IYC), launched the nationwide “Rozgar Do” campaign from here today to highlight the issue of rising unemployment under BJP regime and to impress upon the Government to create job opportunities for them.
The campaign was launched in the presence of JKPCC chief G A Mir, Raman Bhalla, Ravinder Sharma and others.
Talking to reporters, Allavaru alleged that the Modi Government’s decision of demonetisation, its faulty implementation of GST and the inept handling of the COVID-19 situation and lockdown have “destroyed” the country’s economic structure.
“When Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, he promised the youth of the country that he would give jobs to two crore youths every year. He sold a dream, but the reality is that 14 crore people have become unemployed due to the policies of Narendra Modi,” said Allavaru.

“Because of wrong policies of Modi Government, demonetisation, faulty implementation of GST and then lockdown have destroyed the economic structure of the country and the truth now is that India cannot give employment to its youth,” Allavaru said.
Allavaru also criticized the J&K Government for abolishing Self Help Group Scheme which has directly affected approximately 16 thousand local unemployed engineers. He further criticized the Government for abolishing the result of J&K Bank PO recruitment, termination order of paramedical staff and Health workers and not-filling up 50 thousand vacancies despite announced by the then Governor of J&K on fast track basis.
GA Mir said that the country is witnessing all-time low economic growth and employment rate has dipped to an all-time low. He alleged that the Centre was not taking any “effective step” on the pattern of NAYA, to improve the economic situation of the country. He said that all sections of society in J&K are facing difficulties but the youth are the worst hit due to great unemployment and the anti youth policies of the present dispensation.
Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla slammed BJP Govt for acting as a mute spectator to the sufferings of J&K people. “BJP’s tall claims of creating job and employment for the youths has turned mere hoax,” he said and blamed BJP for the falling growth rate of the country.
Ravinder Sharma, Chief Spokesperson said that charged BJP Government with failure on all fronts while Uday Chib accused BJP of double speak.
