Former BJP leader and chief of newly founded Bharat Vahini Party Ghanshyam Tiwari today lashed out at Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje for ignoring the grave issue of rising unemployment in the state.
Accusing the state government of wasting money on beautification of river Dravyavati, organising 'Resurgent Rajasthan' and the Jaipur Metro Rail project, Tiwari dared Raje to reveal the number of jobs created during her tenure.
Rajasthan was ranked 9th in 'Ease of doing business' ranking and for the third consecutive year, the state performed poorly in the national ranking released by Union Ministry of Commerce, he said.
The former BJP leader also took a dig at Raje's 'Suraj Gaurav Yatra' which begins from August 1 to highlight the work done by her government.
Tiwari asked the chief minister to provide information on the expenditure incurred on events like 'Resurgent Rajasthan' and 'Global Rajasthan Agritech Meet' along with the resulting investment that they attracted.
Tiwari further said that the present government lacked any roadmap to tackle the challenges of rising unemployment and boosting economic prosperity of the state.
Talented youth are migrating from the state for job opportunities, he added.
