Vikramaditya Singh, the state Youth Congress chief on Friday hit out at transport minister, GS Bali and his son, RS Bali over the Rojgar Yatras being taken out by them in the state. He said that nothing could be achieved by holding such 'yatras'.
While talking to reporters here, he said that the state government was committed for providing employment to the unemployed youth of state and thousands of jobs had already been provided in the government and private sectors. Besides, much had been done and more was in the pipeline under the skill development programme.
He said that there was a need to hold employment fairs which are already being put up in different parts of the state.
Replying to a question about the expulsion of some Youth Congress leaders from the organisation, he said that all such persons who had failed to work for the organisation had been expelled and the action was fully justified.
Singh blasted the Central government over the land acquisition bill and said that the party and the Youth Congress would organise rallies and meetings in three phases from May 21 to 28. Such rallies would also be held from block level to the state level.
He dubbed the bill as anti people and said that it would harm the cause of the farmers of the state in general and India in particular and the party would strongly oppose this anti people move of the BJP led NDA government at centre.
He justified the sports bill of the state government adding that the party would pursue the governor to give his assent to the bill passed by the state assembly as it was for the benefit of people in general and sportspersons in particular.
He clarified that under the bill, the government would not be able to control sports bodies but it could still help sportspersons to get out of the control of sports mafia.
He said that Bhartiya Janta Party MP, Anurag Thakur was trying to fool the people of the state and IOA on sports bill issue and said that there was no question of IOA disaffiliating the state sports bodies from its preview just by passing the sports bill.
