UP Govt Deceiving People with Promise of Jobs, Says State Congress Chief Ajay Kumar Lallu
The Uttar Pradesh Congress on Sunday accused the Yogi Adityanath government of deceiving people with a promise to provide 1.25 crore jobs and said its claims are "false" and not synonymous with the ground reality.
UP Congress chief Ajay Kumar Lallu said the government promise of providing 1.25 crore jobs "is false, and cheating (thagi)".
"Everyday, at one place or the other, people are committing suicides because of economic hardships," he added.
He said a migrant labourer, who had returned from Surat to Amlohra village in Banda district, committed suicide on Friday.
Industries like glass, brass, carpet, weaving, furniture, leather, hosiery, dairy, earthen utensils, fishery-hatchery have experienced a strong shock.
