Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav today picked on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's suggestion that India's youth find gainful self-employment in selling pakodas to turn the spotlight on what he claimed was the ruling NDA government's unfulfilled promises. He also referred to BJP president Amit Shah's recent remark that the BJP will rule for at least 50 years to quip that under the present regime, the country may not have an election again.
"Modiji promised two crore jobs every year, but now he says fry pakodas," Mr Yadav told the audience at the NDTV Yuva, a special youth conclave. "We say okay, we are ready, but could you at least give us Rs. 1-2 lakh of the Rs. 15 lakh you promised so we can set up a thela? But he's not ready."
"Anyway, the question is: If two crore people start frying pakodas, who will eat them?" he added.
