Opposition Congress in Manipur on Monday slammed the BJP government both at the Centre and state for failing to implement promising policies and programmes that will provide employment to the youth.

Addressing the media at Congress Bhavan Imphal, Indian Youth Congress (IYC) secretary (in-charge Northeast) Sarifa Rahman urged the BJP government both at the Centre and state to find out policies and programmes that will provide jobs to the youth of the country.

While pointing out the country’s unemployment rate was the highest in the last 45 years under the Narendra Modi led BJP government at the Centre, she observed a grim unemployment situation in the country.

Rahman alleged that there were one or more unemployed or jobless educated youths in every household of the country.

Those youths who had been reduced to jobless due to the COVID-19 pandemic have also been forced to return to their respective villages and homes. The nation continues to suffer because of the unplanned policies of the BJP government,” she said.

The youth Congress leader alleged that the BJP came to power in the country and state only on the promise of providing jobs to the youths. 

But, despite being ruling for the second term, the BJP government has failed to provide employment to the youth.

Rahman maintained that the COVID-19 situation has worsened the already worst unemployment problem of the country and government both at the Centre and state were not taking up any policy or programme to address this worsen unemployment problems. “Instead they were making policies benefiting the corporate and businessmen and trying to implement bills which will strangulate farmers of the country,” Rahman said.

She expressed worry while alleging that the Biren government has failed to come up with a policy or programme that will impart jobs to state youth who were forced to leave their jobs outside the state and returned to the state due to the pandemic.

She also asked the government to find ways to address the problems of these jobless youth of the state and added that “this is not the time for power politics while people are at the limit of their woe”.

At the same time, the IYC secretary said that Congress was ready to launch a campaign to create awareness among the people on the visionless policies and programmes of the BJP government.

Supplementing the IYC leader, MPCC general secretary Amit Shah who is also the in-charge of IYC said that Congress will highlight the failure of the BJP government at the Centre as well as in the state during the campaign for the upcoming by-elections in the state.

The Congress will leave no stone unturned to highlight the miserably failed government both at the Centre and in the state during the campaign for the by-election, he said.

“Congress will send out its candidates in the by-election and will win the by-elections,” he confidently declared.
