On Monday, PMO made an announcement that government is taking some serious steps to curb growing joblessness. After un ruling some big economic reforms such as Demonetisation and GST, Modi government is now ready to increase jobs for youths.
India is witnessing the slowest job growth rate currently and various government initiatives to create jobs in the country are yet to show results. Make In India did gain some momentum initially but it has failed to create jobs. BJP government has completed its three years in May. Creating jobs was one of their main agendas, Modi during his election campaign had promised that BJP will create 10 million new jobs, but real figures don’t seem to be any where near the target.
Government has started taking data from various agencies to calculate joblessness. Government’s main focus is on an online game application, Ludo Star. Ludo star has become quite famous lately since it’s played by all the jobless people who are active on social media. It brings all the jobless people on the same platform.
Faking News reporter spoke to the Minister of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions , Jitendra Singh on the issue. Mr Jitendra said UPA govt has shown wrong data of joblessness index during their tenure. We have identified that more people played Ludo Star than the number that Congress claimed as unemployed.
Using data of a game application to find out the number of jobless people is questionable but it also shows that Modi’s digital India hasn’t flopped completely.
