A student from Dibrugarh University dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold discussions on employment issues with the youth—‘Naukri Pe Charcha’ and the sought clarification on the slowdown of the Indian economy.
“A request from Dibrugarh University, Assam to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji to organize shows called “Naukri pe Charcha” and “Desh ke Economy pe Charcha” along with the students of different Universities,” Gyanashree Bora wrote on her Facebook along with a 55-second video.
In the short video, the student gave an open challenge to PM Modi to talk about the job promises and added that the youth of the country will be there to bring the talks to the table.
“You have held ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ for the students…. Let’s hold ‘Naukri pe charcha’ for the youth… We the youth of Assam, Northeast, Delhi, JNU….are ready to reach any location to hold discussions on this topic. Let’s hold discussions on ‘Desh ke Economy pe Charcha,” Gyanashree Bora roared at a public meeting.
She continued, “Let’s talk about employment, the promises of giving 2 crore jobs to the youth every year. We also want to know about the promises of the 5 trillion dollar economy… A lot of data have been manipulated. We are no longer foolish. We need an answer.”
The challenge came after the Modi led government on January 20th, 2020 held the third edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020 where the Prime Minister was seen sharing ‘valuable tips’ to ease the stress of students ahead of the upcoming board examinations.
It may be mentioned that the chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Gita Gopinath earlier held India responsible for the downgrade in global growth.
She blamed India’s economic slowdown for a ‘lion’s share’ of the 0.1 per cent cut in the global economic growth projections for last year to 2.9 per cent and to 3.3 per cent for the current year from those made in October
