New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said the union minister Santosh Gangwar must produce data for his claim that there is "no dearth of jobs in the country and the north Indian candidates lack qualification".
मंत्रीजी, 5 साल से ज्यादा आपकी सरकार है। नौकरियाँ पैदा नहीं हुईं। जो नौकरियाँ थीं वो सरकार द्वारा लाई आर्थिक मंदी के चलते छिन रही हैं। नौजवान रास्ता देख रहे हैं कि सरकार कुछ अच्छा करे।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) September 15, 2019
आप उत्तर भारतीयों का अपमान करके बच निकलना चाहते हैं। ये नहीं चलेगा।https://t.co/2f9ZhGmVoT
Claiming that there is no dearth of job opportunities in the country, Union Minister Santosh Gangwar had said that there is a lack of qualifications among North Indian candidates.
"I want to say that there is no dearth of job opportunities in the country. Those who come for recruitment in north India often complain that they are unable to find the quality in candidates required for the post they are hiring for," said Gangwar, MoS (Independent Charge), Ministry of Labour and Employment while addressing a press conference in Bareilly on Saturday.
"I am looking after the same ministry and I monitor the situation on a daily basis. There is no dearth of employment in the country. We have employment exchanges for a purpose and we have also developed a separate system. Our ministry monitors the situation," Gangwar added.
मंत्रीजी, आपने इतनी बड़ी बात बोली है तो अब आँकड़े भी दे दीजिए। आपने कितनी नौकरियाँ पिछले 5 साल और 100 दिन में दीं? पिछले 5 सालों में कितने उत्तर भारतीयों को नौकरियाँ दीं? Skill India कार्यक्रम के तहत कितनी नौकरियाँ दीं? हाँ याद रखिए, नौकरियाँ छीनने के आँकडें जनता के पास हैं। pic.twitter.com/PPQhUage13— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) September 16, 2019
His statement came at a time when the economy slumped to a seven-year low of 5 per cent in April to June quarter from 8 per cent a year ago. The economic slowdown coupled with employment has raised concern among economists and politicians who are holding centre responsible for it.
The slowdown was largely due to a sharp dip in the manufacturing sector and agriculture output, Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation had said in a statement. (ANI)
