Slamming the Union Minister of Labour (MoS) Santosh Gangwar for his controversial comment regarding the lack of jobs in India, BSP Supremo Mayawati, on Sunday has said that the comment on her fellow north Indians' skill was shameful. She also pointed out the many hilarious comments by various Union Ministers on India's economy, preceding this comment on the job crisis. She has demanded Gangwar to apologise for his comments. The minister had claimed that there was no lack of jobs in India.
देश में छाई आर्थिक मंदी आदि की गंभीर समस्या के सम्बंध में केन्द्रीय मंत्रियों के अलग-अलग हास्यास्पद बयानों के बाद अब देश व खासकर उत्तर भारतीयों की बेरोजगारी दूर करने के बजाए यह कहना कि रोजगार की कमी नहीं बल्कि योग्यता की कमी है, अति-शर्मनाक है जिसके लिए देश से माफी मांगनी चाहिए।— Mayawati (@Mayawati) September 15, 2019
(After the various hilarious comments by Union ministers on the Indian economy, this comment that there was a lack of skill in North India and not lack of jobs is shameful, for which he should apologise)
Similarly, Congress general secretary UP (East) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra too has slammed Gangwar's comments. She has pointed that the BJP government has been there for five years now, but there are no jobs created. She added that the existing jobs have been lost due to the economic recession brought by the government. She added that the youth were looking upto the government to do some good. By insulting North Indians, she stated that the government cannot escape.
(Minister, your government is more than 5 years old. Jobs were not born. The jobs that were there have been lost due to the economic recession brought by the government. Young people are looking at the way that the government should do something good. You want to escape by insulting the North Indians. It will not work.)
Earlier on Saturday, the MoS of Ministry of Labour and Employment Santosh Gangwar said that lack of qualifications among north Indian candidates leads to their unemployment. He also claimed that there is no scarcity of job opportunities in the country. "I want to say that there is no dearth of job opportunities in the country. Those who come for recruitment in north India often complain that they are unable to find the quality in candidates required for the post they are hiring for," said Gangwar, while addressing a press conference in Bareilly.
He added, "I am looking after the same ministry and I monitor the situation on a daily basis. There is no dearth of employment in the country. We have employment exchanges for a purpose and we have also developed a separate system. Our ministry monitors the situation."
