Rising India Summit 2019 LATEST updates: Addressing News18 Rising India Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi targetted Congress and said that India's ease of doing business ranking slipped during UPA rule. "More than 6 lakh professionals have joined the workforce in the last 4 years, these professionals have themselves created lakhs of jobs," he said.
Taking a dig at critics, Modi said those who don’t believe him should at least believe what Opposition-ruled states are saying about jobs creation. “When jobs were created in West Bengal and Karnataka, how can anyone say no jobs were added in India,” he asked.
He lashed out at Congress and said his rivals are upset since his government “plugged their sources of black money”, adding that his job was to ensure that each and every penny of the taxpayers was accounted for.
