The achievements (of the government) were not meeting the aspirations of a great majority of the youth. "That is what characterises the youth of Gujarat and Maharashtra. They are unsatisfied employed youth. The big lesson, therefore, is to address unsatisfactory employment", Mr Kumar told news agency PTI.
BJP had won the election with a majority securing 99 seats and Congress 77 in the 182 member assembly. Mr Kumar said problems related to agriculture were another issue that has to be tackled.
"Agriculture has become backward. You are left behind. You have to change many things, including Minimum Support Price for farmers. This is not easy," he said.
Asked to comment on US tech major Accenture's statement of artificial intelligence alone contributing a whopping $ 957 billion to GDP by 2035, Kumar said he has not done any estimation, but it has potential to contribute much more if India improves formalisation of economy.
On fears of joblessness due to automation, Mr Kumar said technology always bring progress, but it has to be tackled in sensitive manner.
"What you have to do is to accept technology, but then make sure that you use it to create jobs in new areas, where people who will not find jobs in old system, will find new system," he said.
