Unemployed youth of Navi Mumbai to get Rs 3500 monthly allowance if Congress comes to power.

Following the footsteps of Madhya Pradesh, Chhatishgarh and Rajasthan Congress where they launched the “Yuva Shakti Card” for the youth of the state and the result they won the election in all three states which was earlier ruled by the BJP, the Navi Mumbai Youth Congress too launched the “Yuva Shakti Card” on 6th January, 2019 in a function held in Ghansoli under the leadership of Navi Mumbai Youth Congress President Nishant Bhagat.  The card promises the youth of Navi Mumbai with many lucrative offers.

The promises which were listed in the Yuva Shakti card were a monthly allowance of Rs.3500 to the unemployed youth till he gets the job, cheap loans to unemployed youth as well as withdrawal of fees for recruitment exams held for government jobs. During the function many Congress senior leaders were present and they assured that if the Congress government comes in power in the Loksabha Election which is about to held this year than the “Yuva Shakti Card” will be a reality because nowadays the only problems youth of the country are facing is unemployment.

Nishant Bhagat, Navi Mumbai Youth Congress President while speaking to Newsband said, “The biggest problem today is that the youth of the country are facing jobs problems. They are not getting the jobs even after completing their graduation. Present government promised that they will be providing more than 2 crores job opportunities to the youth but they didn’t fulfilled their promise. Now many youth are facing unemployment and they are the future of the country. The youth have the power to change the government. We have taken the initiative to bring out this “Yuva Shakti Card” for the youth of Navi Mumbai on the line of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhatishgarh government and through this card the youth of Navi Mumbai will be able to get Rs. 3500 as a monthly allowance till they are unemployed. The youth can give us a miss call on the mobile no 9910222019 to register themselves for this card. We will be having the details of the candidates one they give us miss call and later they can personally come to the office to fill the forms and submit their documents to avail the benefits.”

He further added, “On Sunday 6th January, 2019 during the function at Ghansoli some around 140 youth gave the miss call and registered themselves for the “Yuva Shakti Card”. We will also be educating youth about many job opportunities which is easily available in the market.”

When Newsband Correspondent asked Manda Mhatre, MLA from BJP, Belapur Constituency about “Yuva Shakti Card” she said, “I am not at all aware about any such type of card. If they start giving the monthly allowance to the unemployed youth and the money start reaching their accounts than only I can say something about it. As of now I can only say that it is political gimmick.  The biggest challenge before them is to come into power first.”

Addressing the youth during the function the senior leaders of Congress said that in the time to come unemployment is set to become a major problem but we will try our level best to short out the problem when our government comes into power.
