The general election of 2019 is primarily being fought on the issues of unemployment n agrarian crisis with other issues also being discussed n propagated threadbare by opposition political parties in order to downgrade the ruling party at the centre led by Narendra Modi .
When in 2014 prime minister Narendra Modi accupied the power at the centre his twin issues were (1) two crore jobs every year to the unemployed youths of the country and (2) bringing back black money stashed foreign banks compounded with deposition of several lakhs in the bank account of an average poor Indian.
There were several other issues like anti Pak bogey, national security n inflation, the main being the rates of the petro products to be controlled including the LPG rates n ofcourse the agrarian crisis etc.
The pro Modi wave on these two issues was so rampant n myriad that the BJP got a historic majority in the Lok Sabha.
This accorded prime minister Narendra Modi an unstinted power to act unilaterally and he brought demonetisation leading to several people being succumbed to heat waves while standing on endless queues n several million serving people in the unorganised sector going unemployed with small n medium businemen constrained to close their trades.
There have been media reports especially in print media that fifty lakh to more than a crore people have gone without jobs and except four to five lakh jobs in the private sector, no one got employment during the last five years.
The Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the entire opposition had been quite vocal and forthright in criticizing the Modi government on the unemployment and black money fronts, inside and outside parliament, where the government of the day seems to have miserably failed.
Yes, issues of Ram Temple construction, abrogation of article 370 n 35 A in Kashmir, execution of uniform civil code that had been the basics of the saffron party since 1977 but had not been fulfilled till date, have definitely been renewed/ raked up and brought to the fore to polarise the votes.
While not going in details n anti thesis of several other core issues on which the saffron government has failed during the last five years with Mallaya, Neerav Modi, Mehul Chowksi, Lalit Modi n 36 others having left the country duping thousands of our tax payers money n allegedly remitting about 3.5 lakh crore bad loans of the capitalists , I would not be reluctant to mention that the 16000 odd employees of Jet airways, due to its sudden closure have gone jobless, unambiguously putting a huge question mark on the credibility of the ruling party at the centre, which otherwise boasts so much of generating employment opportunities in the country under its 5 year regime.
Hundreds of thousands of the families of the jet Airway employees who’d not been given salaries for the last four months are confronted with immense financial insecurities, no able to pay their children’s tution fees, health n medical bills n arranging rations in the family.
Those working in this company for the last 29 years have all of a sudden met with a bleak future after they have been ousted from jobs.
Is this the employment generation, the nation is witmessing under the present regime?
What is the fault of this company’s employees who’d put in their sweat n blood in the company for three decades and they are finally given the termination orders.
Where are the leaders n the ministers concerned who shout from the horse’s mouth about the nation progressing manifold n people getting hundreds of thousands of jobs.
This is the time when the present political dispensation which came to power in 2014 on employment plank has to show its worth n seriousness by coming out of mere rhetorics and resolving the Jet airways issues by coming to the rescue of about twenty thousand employees who are on the roads today desperately praying for their jobs to be retained for the survival and sustenance of their respective families.
Will reverred Prime minister Narendra Modiji come forward n help Jet airways get revived thus saving 20000 people likely to go heywire in the near future with their families literally coming on the bank of disaster? The whole nation will bless you, Sir.
Meanwhile, according to a latest survey of EPFO payroll Data, job creation has trebled to a two year high at 8.61 lakhs in February.
It may be recalled that at least one lakh people depend in Jet Airways to run their house holds. The Jet Airways management all of a sudden of Wednesday told its emoloyees about its compulsion to close down all its operations as it could’nt receive Rs 883 crores from its lenders to continue its operations which included the salaries of its entire staff worth Rs. 230 crores. All efforts to knock at the doors of PMO has not brought any result.
