Agra: BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today promised to provide one crore jobs to the youth of the country if voted to power at the Centre.
"If BJP comes to power, it will provide one crore jobs which the UPA Government could not do despite announcing it before the last Lok Sabha polls," Modi said at an election rally Thursday.
The Gujarat Chief Minister said with 65 percent of the Indian population below the age of 35, the youth, currently struggling with unemployment, can be galvanised into a force for the development of the country.
BJP national President Rajnath Singh, who also addressed the gathering, said terrorism will be wiped out if Modi becomes the Prime Minister, and "no country will dare to look at India with bad intention."
He said the interest of farmers will be paramount under BJP rule and in UP, sugarcane growers will be given their due.
In the rally, the BJP leaders claimed that the plane of Rajnath, who arrived late at the venue, was kept waiting for over an hour for permission to take off from Delhi airport.
