FATORDA: Goa Forward Party (GFP) President and Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai today said that BJP led Goa government has failed miserably in creating jobs for Goans.
“You and your BJP and Goa Government have failed miserably in creating jobs for Goemkar youth while keeping your propaganda machine fully employed,” said Vijai.
He further said that Goa ranks second highest in unemployment in India 2021-22, according to the Labour Ministry.
“After calling CMIE and NITI Aayog figures false and faulty, can we expect the same response?” he questioned.
“Unemployment is a silent killer of our society. I warn the Pramod Sawant government that if it’s not tackled today, it will directly impact Goa’s way of life tomorrow, and we will realise it only when we see the dire consequences in other areas like crime,” he said.
He questioned that the government is claiming that the state is leaping ahead in start-ups and entrepreneurship, then why is the unemployment rate at 16.2 per cent?
Vijai said that if the unemployment issue of the coastal state is not resolved, then it will directly impact Goa’s way of life tomorrow.
