Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has said that unemployment is one of the major threats to the growth of the nation.
Rahul, while addressing students at the Princeton University on Tuesday, added that New Delhi needs to work on providing adequate education and health facilities to all its people, irrespective of whether they are rich or poor.
“The central question is how India gives its people jobs. If you, as a modern country, are unable to give your people jobs, it’s very difficult to give them a vision. Every day nearly 30,000 new youngsters come into the job market. 450 jobs are being provided today,” he said.
“Education and health facilities at the top level are very good, but if you go to a state like Bihar or Uttar Pradesh things don’t remain the same. If you are poor, things are not very good for you in India,” he added.
Creation of jobs is the biggest challenge that India faces right now, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said on Tuesday. The job numbers are nowhere where they should be, Gandhi said, as he admitted that previous Congress governments had failed to address the concern.
However, Gandhi added as an addendum, even the current Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party has failed to provide Indian youth with jobs.
