Taking a swipe at opposition parties over their charge of a "jobless" growth, BJP President Amit Shah said that had Congress paid attention to such figures during the UPA government, they would not have suffered defeat in successive elections.
We have tried to give a new perspective to employment as it is not possible to provide employment to everyone in a country of 125 crore people. We are promoting self-employment and the government has made eight crore people self-employedAmit Shah, President BJP
He was addressing the media on the third anniversary of the Modi government.
The BJP chief said the Modi government had laid the foundation of a "new India", as he described it as a decisive and transparent dispensation which had achieved what past governments could not since Independence.
Congress launched a scathing attack on the NDA government, saying that the country was "on the verge of strife" and had a "dark future" under Modi dispensation, while other parties alleged atrocities against weaker sections.
