UPA ‘cheating’ youths: Modi

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress-led UPA government of making false promises of providing jobs to unemployed youths.

“See the Congress manifesto, it says we will give jobs to people from each family. In 2009, they said one crore jobs will be given. Has it happened?” Mr. Modi asked a gathering at the Swami Vivekanand Youth Convention in Patan.

“Why are they cheating youths like this? If someone cheats, we cannot forgive...It is not our nature to cheat,” he said. Mr. Modi was reacting to state Congress unit’s announcement that it would provide jobs to 10 lakh youths in the state, if voted to power. Elections in Gujarat are scheduled later this year.

“The government in Delhi is cheating the youths of Gujarat, while we are bringing industrial development in the state,” the Chief Minister said.

“As per GoI survey estimates, 72 per cent of jobs created in India are coming from Gujarat,” he said, adding, “Please don’t have expectations from Delhi.” “Over 3.5 lakh people have got jobs in last one decade rule of Gujarat government. One lakh more will get jobs,” he said.

If any youth wishes to start his own venture, the Gujarat government will back him by providing bank loans, Mr. Modi announced. “These are not small decisions. It’s not my courage but the faith I have in you. Our youngsters will not do wrong...I have the faith,” he said.

I am a placement officer of one of the leading college of gujarat. This
statement made by CM calls for kudos. Its absolutely right. I myself
have placed more than 14000 fresher in last 5 years. And let me say the
need of good people still haunts. Center of excellence in various
sectors are definitely paving way for acceptability of today's youth in
industries. The strides taken by GoG is worth appreciating.
Keep up CM the good work you are doing.

The real cheater is the RBI which inflates away the savings of the
people of this country by depreciating the purchasing power of rupee.

As far as congress state president is concerned, how can govt provide
jobs to youths. The govt itself is employed by people , how can
employee employ the employer. Does the jobs grows on trees?.

If the govt believes in it providing the jobs then India is on 'the
road to serfdom'. There is hope for good future of India as long as
people believe that they have a right to somebody's else hard work. If
we believe in serfdom than our future will be no different than that
was of the soviet union.

Narendra Modi's speeches are indicative of his poor level of enlightenment. A person aspiring to occupty the country's premiership should not stoop to such boorish levels. As a resident of Tamil Nadu have had the opportunity to visit various parts of Gujarat. All the hype about development is not fully true. Evasion of VAT and taxes is rampant. Even major cities do not have basic sanitation facilities and one has to search for dingy lanes to attend nature's call. Shops outside bus stops loot unwary passengers charging prices far above the MRP and there is no one to check them. If this is development it is a big joke on the sensibility of the masses. Less said about Narendra Modi's role in the communal riots the better. Mercifully human memory is short. Else all the Indians who are in other countries in search of their livelihood would have been sent home by now bag and baggage.
