“PM’S Kill India Programme. Rs 30,000 crore stolen from HAL and given to a man with no skills in making aircraft. Meanwhile, millions of skilled youngsters face the highest unemployment rate in 20 years,” he tweeted, attaching a news report titled “Rate Of Unemployment In India Highest In 20 Years: Report”.

Gandhi’s remarks come a day after a noted private university in its report said that India’s structural transformation was slower than desired, resulting in a situation where there was an absolute decline in employment post-2013, with the unemployment rate among the youth now at 16 per cent.
