However, Congressional Leader Rahul Gandhi extended a one-line birthday greeting – “Happy Birthday, Modi Ji” – via tweet on Friday morning, only to post another tweet in Hindi indirectly supporting the Congress of the Youth later in the evening.
“There would have been no need for National Unemployment Day if the BJP had worked for people other than some friends,” Gandhi said on Twitter.
Leaders of the Youth Congress claimed that there had been a multiple spike in unemployment among young Indians during Modi’s tenure in office thus far, rationalizing their decision to mark the prime minister’s birthday as unemployment day.
Meanwhile, AICC spokesperson Supriya Shrinate said: “We pray for his (Modi’s) welfare, but we believe that this day is celebrated in many parts of the country as Unemployment Day, Day Against Farmers, Day of high prices, the day of the paralyzed economy. , like earning the day of your crony capitalist friends, such as ED, IT, the day of the CBI raid and the day of mismanagement of the crown (Covid-19). ”
