Rahul Gandhi’s remark comes a day after Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, in reference to the ongoing Maratha agitation, said reservation would not guarantee employment as jobs were shrinking in the country.
In a sarcastic remark over Union minister Nitin Gadkari’s “where are the jobs” comment, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday praised the BJP leader for his “excellent question”, saying every Indian had the same query. Gandhi’s remark comes a day after union road transport minister, in reference to the ongoing Maratha agitation, said reservation would not guarantee employment as jobs were shrinking in the country.
Talking to reporters in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad district, Gadkari was quoted by PTI as saying, “Let us assume the reservation is given. But there are no jobs. Because in banks, the jobs have shrunk because of IT. The government recruitment is frozen. Where are the jobs?”
Taking a swipe at Gadkari, Gandhi tweeted, “Excellent question Gadkari Ji. Every Indian is asking the same question.” He also tagged a media report carrying Gadkari’s remarks.
