While Modi Government is praising itself on more employment in the country during the last three years of its rule, the daily reports coming in the press give a completely different picture.
The government is not filling up the vacant posts due to retirement in the central departments like Railway, Posts, Income Tax etc. etc. Public Sector Units have been directed not to fill up the vacancies. In the private sector, the situation is not different. Infoysis, Wipro, Cognizant, IBM, Ford – all these MNCs have started retrenching workers in thousands. The decision of USA, Gulf countries etc. to restrict migrant job seekers is one of the reasons.
Government of India has to take urgent steps to ensure that the young people get jobs.
