Rahul Gandhi today used the term “Fuhrer” to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi over a report that says that the country’s unemployment rate was at a 45-year-high in 2017-18.
The National Sample Survey Office’s (NSSO’s) periodic labour force survey (PLFS), which has been accessed by the Business Standard newspaper, says unemployment was at 6.1 per cent in 2017-18, the highest since 1972-73.
The report was not released despite being vetted by the National Statistical Commission in December, allege its two non-independent members who quit on Tuesday.
“NoMo Jobs! The Fuhrer promised us 2 Cr jobs a year.
5 years later, his leaked job creation report card reveals a National Disaster. Unemployment is at its highest in 45 yrs. 6.5 Cr youth are jobless in 2017-18 alone.
Time for NoMo2Go,” tweeted the Congress president, referencing the nickname for Adolf Hitler and also using the hashtag #HowsTheJobs, a twist on the popular catchphrase “How’s The Josh” from the blockbuster film “Uri: The Surgical Strike”.
