After Rally, Rahul Gandhi Visits Protesting Job Seekers In Kerala
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who was in Kerala ahead of the assembly polls in the state, visited a group of Public Service Commission rank holders protesting outside the state secretariat, in an unexpected change of schedule.
Mr Gandhi, during a rally in Thiruvananthapuram, hit out at the Left government in Kerala and claimed jobs in the state were only available for the CPI(M) workers.
"I want to tell you about what's happening in the country and the state. I want to speak not only to the Congress workers, but to all. To students who are educated but are protesting in front of the legislature and wondering why they are not able to get jobs. I want to speak to fishermen that why as they leave for the sea, they read in newspapers that the government is working to destroy their livelihood", he said.
Later he visited the protesting rank holders and said, "Youngsters in Kerala are wondering why they can't get jobs. It is dynamic state with brilliant youngsters. Left front government said they will make Kerala perfect. My question is - perfect for whom? Perfect for people of Kerala or for its own party? If they are one of them, carry their flag, every job is for them."
