New Delhi: Referring to Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) report, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, on Saturday, criticized National Democratic Alliance government for failing to create jobs and lying about it. He also said the three main issues in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls would be jobs, jobs and jobs.

“The top three issues in the elections will be jobs, jobs and jobs.”

“What is worse? Not creating jobs or lying about creation of jobs?” Chidambaram also targeted the NDA in a tweet, alleging that it was guilty of both.

“Glad that CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) has found its voice and has exposed the government’s bogus claims on job creation. Hope that others also will speak up,” the former Union finance minister said.

On Wednesday, the non-government and non-profit organisation, CII had expressed concern over the country’s job market amid growing challenges of making a generation employment-ready. However, it had on Thursday stated the recent reforms conducted by the BJP government were creating new livelihoods across existing and emerging sectors.
