FATORDA: Goa Forward Party (GFP) President and Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai today exposed the BJP government on unemployment with data and statistics claiming that Goan youth are mostly unemployed during peak tourism season.
“During Peak Tourism Goan Youths are most unemployed. Goa unemployment rate is double the National average. i.r National Average is 7.1% whereas Goa is at 16.2%,” said Sardesai
He further said that this BJP government led by Pramod Sawant just want to have events and siphon of funds.
“Do your Job Chief Minister Pramod Sawant. According to CMIE Goa’s unemployment rate for January is 16.2 per cent, twice the national average. The Government’s betrayal of youth with false promises continues. If you can’t generate jobs for youths of Goa then why should you keep your job?” Sardesai questioned.
Goa’s unemployment rate in November 2022 was 13.6 per cent, while India’s rate stood at 8.1 per cent then.
He said that CMIE is an economic think tank, which comes out with figures of unemployment every month.
