Synopsis: Addressing a press conference at the DPCC office, Rajiv Bhawan here today, Shri Anil Bhardwaj said that the Modi Government and the Arvind Government, in their election manifestoes, had promised two crore and eight lakh jobs, respectively, every year, but none of these promises were fulfilled. He said that the youth of Delhi, with their dreams shattered, now stare at a stark future, “as any kind of subsidy is no substitute for employment”. He said that Delhi suffered the worst due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as the crisis was totally mismanaged by the Modi and Arvind Governments. Others present at the press conference were Delhi Pradesh Mahila Congress president Ms. Amrita Dhawan and Delhi Pradesh Youth Congress president Ranvijay Singh Lochav.

Former Parliamentary Secretary to the Chief Minister and ex-MLA Shri Anil Bhardwaj questioned the purpose of the BJP Government taking out the “Jan Ashirwad Yatra” and the Aam Aadmi Party Government holding the “Tiranga Yatra” when the youth are without jobs as the Capital is facing the worst unemployment scenario in the past 45 years, women struggle to manage household expenses due to soaring prices of all essential commodities, including the steep hike in the prices of cooking gas, petrol and diesel, and families facing hard times to wriggle out of the terrible blows inflicted on them by the Covid-19 pandemic which did not spare a single family?

 “What Ashirwad they are asking for when every section of Delhi’s population has been terribly impacted  by the pandemic, though the unemployment situation had begun worsening even before the pandemic”, Shri Bharadwaj said.

Addressing a press conference at the DPCC office, Rajiv Bhawan here today, Shri Anil Bhardwaj said that the Modi Government and the Arvind Government, in their election manifestoes, had promised two crore and eight lakh jobs, respectively, every year, but none of these promises were fulfilled. He said that the youth of Delhi, with their dreams shattered, now stare at a stark future, “as any kind of subsidy is no substitute for employment”. He said that Delhi suffered the worst due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as the crisis was totally mismanaged by the Modi and Arvind Governments. Others present at the press conference were Delhi Pradesh Mahila Congress president Ms. Amrita Dhawan and Delhi Pradesh Youth Congress president Ranvijay Singh Lochav.

Shri Anil Bhardwaj said that jobs in the private sector have dried up, small scale and household industries have shut shops as they received no revival package from the Modi and Arvind Governments after the long Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns drove out the migrant labour, an inevitable cog in the wheels of the industries, and crushed any hopes of these industries being revived with their financial backbones crushed. He said that once upon a time Delhi used to be an attractive place for jobs, and youths from all over the country used to descend on the Capital for employment, but now there is the dire scenario of reverse migration as the youth of Delhi are forced to go out for jobs, with Chief Minister Arvind busy in other States like Punjab and Uttarakhand, promising freebies like 300 units of free power to every household.

Shri Anil Bharadwaj asked how many jobs have been created by the Arvind Government in the past seven years? Where is the Jan Lokpal, which Arvind had promised in his election manifesto? He said that there was no discussion about creation of jobs by CM Arvind now as his incompetence has ruined the lives of the youth. He said that the CM could not fulfil the promises made to doctors, nurses, paramedics, teachers and others, and Delhi, which was known the world over as a progressive, prosperous, green and beautiful city in the world during the Congress regime, is in tatters now.

Shri Anil Bhardwaj demanded unemployment allowance for the youth, and reduction in VAT and Excise Duty to provide some relief to the people.

Delhi Pradesh Mahila Congress president Ms. Amrita Dhawan said that the cooking gas price, which was around Rs 400 when Congress was in power, has now gone up to over Rs 860 per cylinder, making lives of housewives unbearable. She wondered where has Union Minister Smriti Irani gone, who used to hit the streets with gas cylinder when the price was around Rs 400?

Delhi Youth Congress president Ranvijay Singh Lochav said that the Arvind Government has reduced a top class city to a third class city as the promise of giving jobs to the youth was not fulfilled in the last seven years. He said that the Arvind Government has collected crores of rupees in taxes, but no money was spent to create jobs.
