No plan to give unemployment allowances: Kamal Nath government’s U-turn on election promise

Before the assembly elections last year, Congress had promised in its manifesto that it will pay an unemployment allowance to the registered unemployed youth in the state.

The Kamal Nath government has made a u-turn on their pre-election promise of giving unemployment allowance to the youth in the state. As per reports, Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath stated in the assembly yesterday that his government has no plan to give unemployment bonus to the youth in the state.

Kamal Nath made the announcement as a reply to MLA Munnalal Goyal’s question. Earlier, the Congress government had promised that it will pay an unemployment allowance up to Rs 4000 to the registered unemployed youth in the state.

Congress MLA Munnalal Goyal had asked in the assembly yesterday whether the state government has any plans to keep its election promise and whether there are any plans to create new jobs for the registered unemployed youth in the state.

CM Kamal Nath had submitted a written reply to the question, saying that the government has no plans to give an allowance. He added that through the implementation of various state and central schemes, the government is trying to provide skill training to the youth so they can be employed in the private sector.

Previously, leader of the opposition Gopal Bhargav had stated that the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh had cheated the youth of the state by not keeping its election promise. He added that the state budget has made no mention of any kind of unemployment allowance, only clever wordplay.

Bhargav also pointed out that instead of publicising the branding of Mava Bati, Jalebi, and Chiraunji Barfi, the state government should take concrete steps to fulfil the promises on which they sought votes from the people.

While campaigning in the state for the assembly elections, then Congress president Rahul Gandhi had announced last year that the unemployed youth in the state will be provided with an allowance of Rs 10,000 per month. The Kamal Nath government has made no progress to fulfil that claim either.

It is notable here that the Kamal Nath government had earlier announced a ‘Yuva Swabhiman Yojna’ for giving allowance to the unemployed youth in the state. The Madya Pradesh cabinet had also approved the proposal.

In February this year, the Kamal Nath government had announced that the young men and women in urban areas will receive an amount of Rs 4000 per month and under another plan, they will be provided work for a minimum of 100 days. The opposition is alleging that after much fanfare and publicity, the government has now reneged on its promises.
