A BJP MP on Monday caused visible discomfort to the treasury benches and invited applause from the opposition members when he said in Lok Sabha that the government’s claim that enough jobs have been created in the last few years was not true reports Indian Express.
While raising a question on the impact of global slowdown on labour and the industry, Harinarayan Rajbhar, who represents Ghosi in Mau district of Uttar Pradesh, said even though Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya has been claiming that many jobs were created in the last few years, it was not true at the ground level.
“In reality, there is no new job is created. It is not happening. Please give us the figures,” he said.
Rajbhar’s remarks put the treasury benches in visible discomfort, as opposition members belonging to the Congress, TMC and Left Parties applauded the BJP member by thumping desks.
The Labour Minister did not reply to Rajbhar’s remarks as Speaker Sumitra Mahajan moved to the next question.
