Congress marks Unemployment Day on PM's birthday
Stepping up attack on the BJP government, Congress on Thursday marked Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 70th birthday as 'National Unemployment Day'.
"Massive unemployment has forced the youth to call today #NationalUnemploymentDay. Employment is dignity. For how long will the govt deny it?" former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Twitter.
Youth Congress activists carried out a nationwide campaign by taking out protest marches and unfurling huge banners demanding jobs and commemorating Modi's birthday as 'National Unemployment Day'. Congress had launched the 'Rozgar Do' campaign on last month to highlight growing unemployment under the Modi government.
