Modi says BJP will focus on job creation

BJP’s prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday promised an economic policy that would provide jobs to the youth now fed up with jobless growth.

“The economy would be reoriented with job creation at the Centre,” he said at an election rally here.

Modi said after agriculture, it was the textile sector that can provide large number of jobs and it should be developed with right kind of infrastructural linkages.

According to him, the BJP in its manifesto has promised development of value chain for the handloom sector.

Reiterating the BJP commitment to interlinking of national rivers, Modi said if voted to power, the NDA government will link “Cauvery and Ganga,” thus addressing the drinking water problems and irrigation challenges of Tamil Nadu.

Modi also took a dig at former Union Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan and without naming her, said a woman Congress leader from the state was responsible for delaying many infrastructural projects in the country including in Tamil Nadu.

Without naming Union Minister P Chidambaram, Modi said wrist watches with photos of the finance minister were being distributed to voters and demanded a probe by the Election Commission.
