Congress mocks PM Modi announcement of 10 lakh govt jobs in 17 months

The direction from Modi came following a review of the status of human resources in all government departments and ministries, the Prime Minister's Office said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked various government departments and ministries to undertake the recruitment of 10 lakh people on a "mission mode" in the next year and a half, his office said on Tuesday.

The direction from Modi came following a review of the status of human resources in all government departments and ministries, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said.

The government's decision comes amid the opposition's frequent criticism of it on the issue of unemployment. A large number of vacant posts in different government sectors has often been flagged.

"PM Narendra Modi reviewed the status of Human Resources in all departments and ministries and instructed that recruitment of 10 lakh people be done by the Government in mission mode in next 1.5 years," the PMO said in a tweet.

"It's called "900 chuhe khaakar billi Hajj ko chali". We're experiencing worst employment (rate) in 50 yrs, rupee value lowest in 75 years... For how long will PM distract us by playing 'Twitter Twitter," Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said in response.
