Ahmedabad, Sep 24 (): Criticizing the Congress-led UPA government, Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the government at the Centre is giving false hopes to the younger generation by saying that it will offer jobs to them.
“Look at the Congress policy; it has alleged it will provide jobs to each member of a family. In the year 2009, the Congress declared providing one crore jobs, but did it happen?” asked Modi to the people at the Swami Vivekanand Youth conference.
The Gujarat Chief Minister while reacting to the Congress party’s announcement said that it is not fair on the part of the UPA government to cheat people by saying that it has planned to offer ten lakh jobs as soon as it comes to power. Modi asserted to the gathering that maximum number of jobs created in the country have been offered from Gujarat and therefore not to hold expectations from Delhi.
More than 3.5 lakh people from Gujarat have been benefitted in the past one decade and the state government has planned to provide another one lakh jobs, said Narendra Modi. Modi also assured bank loans to youth who preferred starting their own business. “I believe our younger generation will take the right decision and I have a lot of confidence in you,” said Modi.
While accusing the recent Central government’s decision over price hike in diesel and restricting the domestic cylinders to six per family Modi alleged that the government turned to be blind on the issue. Narendra Modi assumed that if his government would have been allowed to lay gas pipelines then he might have announced five crore LPG cylinders which would have reduced the burden significantly.
The Congress government two years back intentionally made a delay in expanding the state gas network by imposing a prohibition in laying gas pipelines “ as it does not want Modi’s influence to grow.” If this project is allowed to implement by the Centre, then people would have gained by cheaper LPG by now, said Modi.
