Former prime minister Manmohan Singh Friday said the Modi government has not constructively dealt with the agrarian crisis facing the nation and the indication of that is the farmers' protests across the country.
Singh said farmers are still not assured of receiving remunerative prices of their produce and the youth are desperately waiting for the promised 2 crore jobs per year, while the employment rate is declining.
“In fact, employment growth rate has been declining in the last 4 years. People are not impressed with the figures being put out by the Modi government to justify the creation of a large number of jobs,” he said.
Releasing a book titled "Shades of Truth" by former union minister and Congress leader Kapil Sibal, he hoped this is the beginning of the national debate that everyone needs.
