Jobs will be the sole issue in the upcoming General elections: P Chidambaram

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram today hit out at the BJP government over lack of job creation. He stated that the three main issues in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls would be jobs, jobs and jobs.

In one of his tweets earlier this morning, Chidambaram asked “What is worse? Not creating jobs or lying about the creation of jobs?”. He alleged that the NDA government was guilty of both. “The top three issues in the elections will be jobs, jobs and jobs,” he added in another tweet.

The former Finance Minister also said “Glad that CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) has found its voice and has exposed the government’s false claims on job creation. Hope that others also will speak up.”

Amid growing challenges of making a generation employment-ready, the CII had on Wednesday expressed concern over the country’s job market.
