Hitting out at the government on the issue of unemployment and farmer distress, president on Wednesday dubbed Prime Minister "jumla raja" (king of rhetoric) and his rule "chaupat raj" (regime of ruin).

Using Twitter to take a swipe at the prime minister, he tagged a media report on the unemployment situation in Uttar Pradesh, claiming that youth with even PhD degrees are applying for class IV jobs.

"Farmers do not get the right prices, the youth do not get the right jobs, in 'jumla raja's chaupat raj', no hard working person gets respect," the chief said in a tweet in Hindi.

The chief has also attacked Modi for not providing adequate prices to farmers for their produce.
