Prime Minister Narendra Modi is celebrating his 70th birthday today (September 17) and leaders from across the spectrum wished the prime minister on his brithday. Besides Indian politicians, several world leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Nepal PM KP Oli also wished PM Modi on his 70th birthday.
Congress leaders like Rahul Gandhi and Shashi Tharoor also wished PM but at the same time, Congress also launched a scathing attack on the prime minister over the growing unemployment in India.
Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted that massive unemployment in the country has forced the youth to call PM Modi’s birthday as National Unemployment Day. He added that employment is dignity and the government should not deny it to youth for long.
यही कारण है कि देश का युवा आज #राष्ट्रीय_बेरोजगारी_दिवस मनाने पर मजबूर है।
रोज़गार सम्मान है।
सरकार कब तक ये सम्मान देने से पीछे हटेगी?

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi said that youth of the country wants that the government must hold exams for government jobs on time and the results should be declared in a fix time frame. She added that the government must create more job opprtunities and if the Centre will fail to address the concerns of the youth then they will change the government.

बगैर कोर्ट गए joining
संविदा कानून रद्द हो

Congress MP Manish Tiwari also took a jibe at PM Modi and tweeted, “BJP’s governance has only been about mangling the economy through demonetisation, GST & lockdowns. COVID19 cases continue to rise and China continues its transgressions. High time we all raise our voices to question this govt on its blunders and administrative failures!”

किसान की आय दुगनी होने बारे – पता नही
किसान की आय कब तक दुगनी होगी – पता नही
कोरोना से कृषक आय पर क्या असर – पता नही
कितने प्रवासी मज़दूर मरे – पता नही
ये हैं मोदी सरकार के संसद में जबाब।
देश कैसे चलाते हैं- इन्हें पता नही.
अबकी बार- बंदर के हाथ में उस्तरा सरकार pic.twitter.com/kMgcQn6J1b
