Shri Vijay Goel welcomes announcement of Dr. Harshvardhan as BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate

The Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party President Shri Vijay Goel today welcomed the announcement of Dr. Harshavardhan as BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate for Delhi polls.  Shri Goel said, “The Party is unitedly fighting the assembly polls to defeat Congress and will form the new government. The BJP is the most viable and preferred alternative to Congress which has set up new records of mis-governance, corruption and anti-people policies in the city over the last 15 years.”
Meanwhile, slamming the Delhi Chief Minister for misleading people of Delhi on the issues of employment generation and development in Delhi, Shri Goel said the Delhi Chief Minister’s claim of providing more employment in Delhi is completely misleading. In fact, the Delhi Police statistics clearly show that on an average everyday one unemployed person commits suicide in Delhi.
Shri Goel further said, “The Congress government is spreading false sense of prosperity and well-being in Delhi by projecting misleading employment figures in the city. According to the latest report of the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment, the unemployment rate in Delhi is 57 per thousand which is one of the highest in the country.
The fact is that the rate of unemployment in Delhi has gone up since 1998. Even according to the Delhi Development Report of the Congress government, the rate of unemployment was 3.6% in 1999-2000 just after the BJP demitted office while it is 4.0% today under the Congress regime. This is due to the gross mismanagement of economy and widespread corruption in the rank and file of the Congress government.
The Congress government makes tall claims about reducing the number of unemployed persons in Delhi. But, its own figures suggest that the absolute number of unemployed people has increased in the city. The government’s policies have affected the well-being of the citizens adversely, which is reflected in the rising incidents of suicides by unemployed people and even students.
The Delhi Chief Minister misrepresented facts about BJP ruled states with misleading figures while the Union government’s reports project a totally different picture of the BJP ruled states. According to the latest Annual Employment & Unemployment Survey report for 2012-13 released by Labour Bureau under Union Ministry of Labour and Employment, Chhattisgarh has the lowest rate of unemployment in the country. The BJP ruled states have one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the country.
Chhattisgarh has an unemployment rate of 14 per thousand, Madhya Pradesh 22 per thousand while Gujarat 27 per thousand. These figures are well below than the unemployment rate for the country at 47 per thousand and much below than the figures for Delhi, whose Chief Minister is leading the misleading campaign.
According to a recent government survey on the basis of Delhi Police statistics, there have been five suicides every day last year with an unemployed person unfailingly being among the daily tally. Of the total 1899 suicides registered during 2012, the highest number was of those who were unemployed with 369 persons taking the extreme step. The survey also revealed that a majority, i.e. 220 of the unemployed who took to ending their lives were aged between 15 and 29 years. Equally alarming is the fact that 266 students committed suicide.
