Digvijaya Singh promises education, jobs in vision document

New Delhi: Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh on Monday shared the glimpses of his vision document for Bhopal on Twitter.

Singh wrote, “the development model of BJP is a betrayal. Youth come to cities like Bhopal to study but have to migrate to other cities in search of jobs. This will stop with our vision of development which will enable youth getting employment in the same city where they study.”

On the micro-blogging site, Singh also took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Pakoda’ remark, in which the prime minister suggested in an interview that a person earning Rs 200 a day by selling ‘Pakodas’ is also employed.

Singh wrote: “From now on youths will not migrate to different cities to do engineering nor does they will fry ‘Pakodas’ due to lack of jobs. We will develop Bhopal like Pune or Bengaluru. Nobody visualised that Bhopal could become an IT hub. We have the vision we will make that happen.”

Congress’ candidate from Bhopal, Digvijaya Singh on Sunday released a ‘Vision Document’ for the all-round development of the city.

Bhopal will go to polls on May 12. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
