Hitting out at the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi in a facebook post has said that the poor economic policies like demonetisation and the ‘poorly implemented’ GST has led to closure of factories and rise in unemployment that is being manifested in the violent attacks on migrants across Gujarat.
The attacks on migrant work force in Gujarat are not good for business and economy and the government must act decisively to restore peace and safety to every Indian.
Here is Rahul Gandhi’s full post on his official Facebook page :
Across Gujarat, poor economic policies, demonetisation and poorly executed GST have devastated industry resulting in the shutting down of factories and industrial units, leading to massive unemployment. Amongst the youth there is growing frustration and anger with the Government’s inability to create jobs. This anger and frustration is being manifested in violent attacks on migrants, across the state of Gujarat.
The migrant workforce is critical to our economic growth. Attacks on them create an environment of fear and insecurity that isn’t good for business and our economy. The Government must act decisively, and do all it can to restore peace and to ensure the safety of every Indian.
