New Delhi: Opposition’s attacks on Union Minister of State (independent charge) for Labour and Employment Santosh Gangwar for his statement about unemployed youth has made him retract. Santosh Gangwar had said during a programme in that there was no dearth of jobs in the today, but the youth of northern India do not have the requisite competence to get employment.

The Congress and the attacked the government over the statement of Santosh Gangwar. Gangwar has clarified, according to news agency ANI, that his statement was misrepresented. “What I said had a different reference. There is a shortage of skills in the and the government has opened the Ministry of Skill Development for this. The job of this ministry is to educate children in accordance with the jobs available,” he said.

Gangwar had told reporters in on Saturday, “When recruiters come to north India, they say that the quality of candidates they are looking for is not in adequate supply in these areas. I work in this ministry and, every day, we churn out ideas as to how to make it work. We have understood the matter. Apart from the employment office, our ministry is monitoring it.”

chief Mayawati tweeted, “Following different ridiculous statements of Union ministers amidst the economic downturn in the country, instead of eradicating unemployment in the and especially north India, to say that there is no lack of employment because of a lack of qualifications is very embarrassing. For this, the minister must apologise before the country.”

Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra tweeted on the statement of Gangwar, ‘You have had a government for five years. You could not create jobs. The jobs that were there are being taken away due to the economic recession brought by the government. Young people are looking at the government to do something good, which has not been done. You cannot escape by insulting north Indians. This will not work.”
