RSS arm irked at jobless growth

DH News Service, New Delhi, May 24 2017, 1:45 IST
An RSS affiliate, Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM), has expressed concern over jobless growth in the country, as the unemployment rate has reportedly gone up though the Narendra Modi government is half-way through its tenure.

The Manch has also written a letter to Modi flagging what it says was “undue haste in introducing unscientific, toxic and anti-biodiversity GM mustard”.

The SJM has urged the government to take immediate steps to encourage more employment opportunities for the youth. At its two-day national executive meeting in Guwahati that ended on Sunday, the Manch passed a resolution saying though India is one of the fastest growing economies, employment generation remains a major concern.

The 2016-17 Economic Survey had acknowledged that employment growth has been sluggish. Realising the challenges, Modi had asked officials to integrate job avenues while giving filip to industrial development.
