Decision Maker Response

Rajeev Chandrasekhar’s response

Mar 29, 2019 — Dear Citizens,

I have received this petition from Roma Ahuja, an HR professional from Pune asking my party, the BJP, to make public the employment data of our country for the past 6 years.

I wish to convey to Ms. Ahuja that regrettably after 70 years of Independence there is still no formal reliable data on job creation in this country and that is an issue BJP intends to address in its next term. I would like to assure Ms. Ahuja and the thousands of people who have signed her petition that my party’s focus on the 4 E’s - education, employment, entrepreneurship and excellence for young people - is stronger than ever before.

In January 2019, our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi had shared that the government has helped create crores of employment opportunities across sectors in the past four-and-a-half years. The data on this speaks for itself.

As a member of the manifesto committee of the BJP and in light of this petition on Change.org, I ensure that we will put in place a robust system of employment data collection to truly reflect the state of employment in the country including self-employment and to better inform policy-making with regard to employment generation.

I would like you to remain updated about the work that my party and I are doing. Please follow me on Twitter @rajeev_mp

Thank you,
Rajeev Chandrasekhar
