There was a queue of people going to Israel for jobs, Congress lashed out at the Centre, said- ‘Indian youth suffering from unemployment…’

Congress targeted the central government: Congress on Saturday (January 27) criticized the central government on the issue of thousands of Indian youth looking for jobs in Israel amid the ongoing war with Hamas. In this regard, General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that thousands of youth suffering from unemployment in states like Uttar Pradesh and Haryana are standing in lines to get employment in place of Palestinian laborers in war-torn Israel.

The Congress leader asked whether the long queues of youth going to Israel for jobs does not show the dire situation of unemployment in our own country? Doesn’t this expose the government’s claims of a rapidly growing employment generating economy?

Mallikarjun Kharge lashed out at the central government
Apart from this, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge also targeted the government regarding this. He said that people are facing crisis in rural areas and hence they are ready to risk their lives during the war. Criticizing the Modi government, he said that in 2022-2023, the daily wage of people in rural India was Rs 212, whereas in 2014 it used to be Rs 220.

‘Employment crisis in rural areas’
The Congress President said that thousands of Indians, who were willing to risk their lives during the war, preferred to work in Israel because both the growth of rural wages and the agricultural rate have become negative in the last 5 years. Due to this, employment crisis has arisen in rural areas.

‘No jobs for educated youth’
In a post on social media platform He said that employment generation has come to the lowest level in 30 months. This shows that there are no jobs for educated youth.

Kharge said, “The demand for work under MNREGA is increasing day by day. The Modi government had cut its funds in Budget 2023-24, but was forced to allocate Rs 28,000 crore more due to unemployment in rural areas. The actual distribution of funds to Panchayats has been 10.4 percent less than the promise made in the 14th Finance Commission (2015-2020).

‘FMCG sales did not increase’
The Congress President said that no growth was seen in the sales of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) in 2023. Additionally, growth in private consumption expenditure, which leads to employment generation, is at a 21-year low.

He claimed that between 2018-19 to 2022-23, tax collection from the public has increased by 50.55 percent, but corporate tax collection has increased by only 2.72 percent. This reflects the ever increasing economic inequalities.
