New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has accused Prime Minister Modi’s government of eliminating two lakh jobs in public sector enterprises and increasing contract jobs.
Rahul Gandhi posted on his Twitter page today (June 18) about this: Public sector companies were the pride of India and the dream of employment for the youth of India. But these are not the priority of the government today.
Employment in the country’s PSUs has declined from 16.9 lakh in 2014 to 14.6 lakh in 2022. Will there be fewer jobs in a developing country? 1,81,127 people have lost their jobs in BSNL. SAIL lost 61,928 jobs, MTNL 34,997, SECL 29,140, FCI 28,063 and ONGC 21,120.
Those who falsely promised 2 crore jobs per year, instead of increasing jobs, they have laid off more than 2 lakh people.
After all, contract recruitment in these companies has almost doubled. Isn’t the increase in contractual employees a violation of the constitutional right to reservation? Or is it a conspiracy to privatize these companies?
Loan waiver of industrialists, elimination of government jobs from PSUs. What kind of durability is this?
If this is truly the ‘Nectar Period’ why are jobs disappearing like this? Under this government, the country is mired in unprecedented unemployment as the confidence of millions of youth is crushed for the benefit of a few crony capitalist cronies.
If India’s public sector enterprises get the right environment and support from the government, they can boost the economy and generate employment. PSUs are the country’s asset and should be encouraged to strengthen India’s path of progress,” he said.
