Citing media reports and RTI replies, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi alleged that the scheme launched in 2015 to “train 40 crore people” was actually a “shortcut to profitable business for the unscrupulous”.

“Skill India Mission has turned out to be a massive scam with people within the BJP eco-system, its cronies, middlemen, touts and mafia pocketing the money for the same and listing ghost beneficiaries.

“The mission of skilling has evolved into a mechanism of fast billing for BJP’s friends. In the name of making youth employable, Modi government’s Skill Development Ministry seems to have created a shortcut to profitable business for the unscrupulous,” said Singhvi.
