Uttar Pradesh: The Communist Party of India (Marxism) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury today slammed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government in Uttar Pradesh saying that the youth needs job and not vigilantism of anti-Romeo squads or ‘gau raksha’.
Criticizing Modi government, CPI-M leader took to post a video message on facebook and went on to say: “Two third of the country’s population comprises youths; they need jobs and not this distraction of ‘gau raksha’ (cow protection) armies or vigilantism of anti-Romeo squads.”
“This conspiracy to distract the youth through emotional issues like cow vigilantism needs to be defeated.”
The CPI-M leader said if unpaid loans totalling Rs 11 lakh crore were recovered from corporates, crores of rupees given annually to corporates as tax rebates is stopped, the revenue thus generated could be used to develop infrastructure and create lakhs of jobs for the youth.
“We need such policies and not those which play with religious and communal emotions, as is being done,” Yechury said.
