The eradication of the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation is the main focus of the country at the moment, with the number of cases on an upward trend. However, before the pandemic, the situation of the economy and jobs was a regular feature of political debates. Pooja Bedi brought the focus back to the pre-COVID-19 phase by asking questions to both the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party about the promises they had made in the advertisements during the campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections last year.

Pooja Bedi shared an advertisement in a newspaper on April 21, 2019, less than a month before the polls, in which Congress, with its NYAY scheme, promised 24 lakh government jobs by 31 March 2020. As it was 31 March 2020, the actor told the party that it’d be ‘nice’ of them to share details of how many were beneficiaries of the jobs and sarcastically wrote that it was ‘reassuring’ when political promises were met.

Now Congress lost the elections to BJP, so many netizens disagreed with her argument and replied that the party was in power at the Centre to create those many jobs. Pooja, however, replied to those reactions that the party might not have won the elections, but was still accountable to answer how many jobs were created in the states they were ruling in.

The Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander star felt that creation of jobs in the state would lend ‘credibility’ to their promise had the party won the general elections. She also called for a survey to figure how many jobs BJP created in the one-year duration.
