Youth take to streets in New Delhi demanding jobs

Published: February 7, 2019

STORY: Thousands of unemployed youth took to the streets of New Delhi on Thursday (January 07) to demand jobs and better education facilities from Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi led government.

According to reports, students from nearly 70 organisations, marched from the historic 17th century monument, Red Fort to the Indian parliament street, with banners and flags, while raising slogans against the central government’s educational policies and growing unemployment among the youth.

A protester, Adil said, the Modi government had failed to fulfill their promise of providing jobs during the five years of their tenure and has instead lowered the morale of its youth.

Heading into polls that must be held by May, Prime Minister Modi is facing discontent over depressed farm incomes and doubts over whether his policies are creating enough jobs.

A report released by the All India Manufacturers’ Organisation recently said 3.5 million jobs had been lost since 2016, mainly due to demonetization and rising working costs after the launch of the national tax.
