Modi promised 2 crore jobs per year, couldn't even provide 2 lakh: Manmohan Singh at Congress Plenary



On Sunday, speaking at the Congress Plenary, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh targeted the Modi govt over its handling of the Jammu-Kashmir problem, demonetization, GST and over the economy.

He also attacked the Modi govt saying their ‘tall promises’ during the campaign had fallen flat and that even though Modi ‘promised 2 crore jobs, he couldn’t provide 2 lakh’.

He said: “The ill-thought legislation of demonetisation has affected the informal job sector badly. The hastily put legislation of GST, too, has taken away jobs from the small & medium sector. These economic reforms are decoupled from economic growth.
