New Delhi: Slamming the central government over the faulty policies, Former Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said India is facing the highest level of unemployment in 50 years under the current Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government at the Centre.

Rahul Gandhi said, “Government speaks of providing employment. 3 crore youth lost their jobs in 2021. Today India is facing the highest unemployment in 50 years. You talk of Made-in-India, Start-Up India, but the youth did not get the employment they were supposed to. The one they had has disappeared. The government pushed 23 crore people back into poverty.”

The Congress leader said the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had pulled 27 crore people out of poverty in 10 years.

“There was not a single word on unemployment in the President’s Address. The youth across the country is looking for jobs. The government is unable to provide them with one. They talk about ‘Made-in-India’. But there cannot be Made-in-India today. The matter has ended because who are the people involved in Made-in-India? Small and medium industry, unorganized sector – whom the Centre has finished. Made-in-India is not going to take place,” said Rahul Gandhi while addressing Lok Sabha during the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address.

Gandhi further slammed the government for having made huge strategic mistake in foreign policy which brought China and Pakistan together.

“The single biggest strategic goal of India’s foreign policy has been to keep Pakistan and China separate. But what you have brought the two countries (Pakistan and China) together. This is the single biggest crime you have committed against the people of India,” says Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha.

Criticising the President’s address that marked the beginning of the Budget Session of the Parliament, the Wayanad MP said the speech had no strategic vision and did not touch upon the main challenges that our country is facing currently including the growing gap between the extremely rich and the poor in the country.
