NEW DELHI: Congress pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi on Sun­day at­tacked the Cen­tre over the is­sue of job cre­ation, al­leg­ing that in­com­pe­tence cou­pled with ar­ro­gance has made the gov­ern­ment a “text­book case of moral bank­ruptcy”.

Gandhi cited a me­dia re­port, which quoted an Uber driver as say­ing that the gov­ern­ment has not given jobs and he found one af­ter in­vest­ing lakhs, to make his point.

The driver had made the re­marks when he was asked about NITI Aayog’s re­ported state­ment that Ola/Uber have cre­ated two mil­lion jobs.

“In­com­pe­tence cou­pled with ar­ro­gance has made this gov­ern­ment a text­book case of moral bank­ruptcy,” Gandhi said in a Face­book post. Gandhi has been highly crit­i­cal of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on the is­sue of un­em­ploy­ment.
