Priyanka slams Yogi govt, urges youth to stick to agenda of employment, education in polls

Highlights

  • Gandhi said that in Uttar Pradesh, 16.5 lakh youth lost their jobs in the last five years
  • Four crore people gave up hope of jobs, Priyanka Gandhi alleged
  • Yogi Adityanath ji never tweets or talks on this, Priyanka Gandhi said

Attacking the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over the issues of employment and education, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi on Tuesday urged the youth to stick to the same agenda in the upcoming assembly polls in the state. 

Citing a media report, Gandhi said that in Uttar Pradesh, 16.5 lakh youth lost their jobs in the last five years and four crore people gave up hope of jobs.

"But @myogiadityanath ji neither talks nor tweets on this. Because he knows that if the curtain is lifted then the secret will be revealed," the Congress general secretary said in a tweet in Hindi.

"Youngsters, stick to the agenda of employment," she said.

In another tweet in Hindi, Gandhi alleged that the Yogi Adityanath government made "massive" cuts in the education budget of Uttar Pradesh in five years.

If the budget would have been more, then the youth would have gotten new universities, internet, scholarships, libraries and hostels, Gandhi said.

"Youngsters, this is the real agenda of this election. Ask questions on this and give a befitting reply with the power of your vote to the one who misleads you," she said.
