Addressing a press meet at the party office in the State Capital, Anwar said that the Central Government has blown away the Indian economy, which is completely in dilapidated condition. “Due to the wrong policies of the Central Government led by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi the unemployment rate is touching its fifty year high and there is huge anger among the job aspirants,” he added.
Hitting hard on the State Government led by the Chief Minister, Raghubar Das the former Union Minister said that the State Government has not been able to hold recruitment through Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) once in five year, which has resulted huge disappointment among youths of the State.
Attacking the Prime Minister the Congress leader said that the Prime Minister visited the State on Tuesday and addressed two election rallies but he did not use a single word on increasing unemployment and dilapidating economy but in fact both are biggest issue before the country. The Prime Minister should clear his stand before people of the country that what he is going to do to redress these two main problems, he added.
Anwar said incidents like hunger death and farmers’ suicides in the mineral-rich State are a sign of the Government’s failure. “A large numbers of cases of malnutrition is coming forward every day, people are dying due to hunger and cases of molestation and rape are increasing in the State every day but the State Government is not taking any step to change the situation,” he added.
Hitting hard on the State Government, Anwar said that the law and order situation of the State is in very poor situation and cases of violence against women like rape, molestation are increasing day by day and it seems the State Government is indifferent on these issues.
