After receiving harsh criticism for the declining employment rate, PM Modi declared in June of this year that 10 lakh jobs will be generated in the next 18 months.
Rahul Gandhi, the head of the Congress, criticised the federal administration at the time, calling it one made up of “maha jumlas.”
The Congress leader compared the recent offer of 10 lakh government employment to the pre-election promise of 2 crore jobs made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 by recalling that pledge.
The BJP and Prime Minister Modi have come under continual criticism from the opposition, who accuse them of “destroying” the economy and creating unemployment. Elections for the Lok Sabha and states have made employment a key campaign issue.
