Mumbai: Union Minister Amit Shah hit out at the Congress stating that the party which did nothing to steer the country’s economy for 60 years is questioning and advising the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government over unemployment and economic slowdown.
“Those who did nothing to run the country’s economy in 60 years are now questioning the Modi government.
Despite ruling the country for decades, Congress is only able to take the country’s economy to the $ 2 trillion marks. Can manage. However, the NDA government took it to USD 3 trillion in just five years time,” said Shah.
The Home Minister was addressing a gathering here after laying the foundation stone of the Indian Institute of Skills (IIS).
“The NDA government’s goal is to make India a $ 5 trillion economy, which was achievable in the past as well. Youth with their entrepreneurial skills can play a big role in achieving this objective,” he said.
Taking a dig at the opposition for targeting the Center over unemployment and economic slowdown, he said: “Some people always see things through negativity.”
“Whenever they ask about employment, the only thing that comes to mind is that you ruled the country for 60 years, but what measures did you take to give employment to the youth of the country,” the Union Minister said.
Talking about the efforts made by his government, Shah said that it is making all necessary efforts to bring employment opportunities to the youth.
“The Indian Institute of Skill will not only provide employment opportunities to the youth but will also play an important role in the development of the country by making the youth of the country become job creators from job seekers,” Shah said.
He said, “The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Skills will not only create employment in the country but will also fulfil the dream of ‘Make in India’ and it will also help the country to build a $ 5 trillion economy”.
Calling on the youth, Shah said: “You can start with (youth) placements but you can be a job creator, be an entrepreneur because a big goal can be achieved from the beginning.”
