"In 2024, India shall ensure NYAY for our students from the Modi Government, for its report card on 'Education' is marked with gross Failure," he said citing the Annual State of Education Report (ASER).

Quoting from the report, he said "56.7 percent of 14 to 18-year-old students in rural India can't do class 3 math and 26.5 percent of this age group still cannot read a class 2 level text fluently in their regional language".

He also noted that 25 percent of youth in the 17-18 age group have discontinued education, mostly due to "lack of interest".

Kharge also posted a 35-second video along with his post that alleged that the “BJP is destroying the future of our young.”
