Ahmedabad: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday hit out at the Congress and other opposition parties for spreading negativity on jobs and economy fronts, saying those who did nothing in 60 years of their rule are now questioning the Modi government.
Shah underlined the achieved goal of NDA government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership. He said that the Congress could only manage to take the country’s economy to a USD 2 trillion mark despite ruling for decades, but the NDA government took it to USD 3 trillion in just five years time.
“When they talk about unemployment, a question always come to my mind, you have ruled this country for 50-60 years, what measures did you take,” Shah asked.
He further asked was there any new solution found during 50-60 years of Congress’ rule to provide employment to the country’s youth.
Is it justifiable that “you ruled for 50 years without doing anything new and now you are seeking answers from us,” he said.
Amit Shah assured that the government is taking necessary steps to ensure that youth get the required skills and employment opportunities.
Amit Shah was addressing a gathering after laying the foundation stone of the Indian Institute of Skills (IIS).
