Raipur: BJP and Congress have once again come face to face on the issue of unemployment in Chhattisgarh ahead of the budget. While the BJP has once again tried to corner the Baghel government over unemployment allowance, Congress recalled Prime Minister Narendra Modi's promise of employment.
In fact, BJP state president Vishnudev Sai has written to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel urging him to keep 9,000 crore rupees in the budget for employment in 3 years. On the other hand, Congress State President Markam said that he should write to Prime Minister Modi in place of Chief Minister Bhupesh and demand Rs 15 lakh each year with 2 crore jobs.
BJP State President Vishnudev Sai wrote a letter to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and appealed to make a provision for giving monthly allowance to unemployed youth of the state in the upcoming budget. Sai wrote that CM you had talked about giving a monthly allowance of Rs 2,500 per month to 10 lakh people. It is an appeal to you that this time in the budget, solve these problems by giving Rs 9,000 crores for employment. At the same time, Sai said that 3 years have been completed but it is unfortunate that no provision has been made for giving unemployment allowance in any year in the budget of 3 years. Sai has written that according to its promise, now the government has to pay 90 thousand rupees per youth for a 3-year monthly allowance. 10 lakh candidates get Rs 3 thousand crores annually as per 2.5 thousand per month.
