‘We will provide 10 lakh jobs in next five years’: Rahul Gandhi in Karnataka
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi participated in the – Yuvakranti Samavesha – that was held at Karnataka’s Belagavi on Monday. He slammed the ruling BJP government and claimed that the ‘40% government’ has ruined the careers of Karnataka’s young people.
Speaking at Belagavi, Rahul Gandhi said, “When I toured across the state during Bharat Jodo Yatra, unemployment was one issue that bothered the youngsters. I had spoken to thousands of young people to understand their issues and how the corrupt BJP government remained as a mute spectator on the unemployment issue. The Congress government will come to power in Karnataka, and I can assure 10 lakh jobs in the span of next five years. We will also fill the vacancies in the government sector, if voted to power.”
