प्रधानमंत्रीजी- 6ठा सवाल:
भाजपा की दोहरी मार
एक तरफ युवा बेरोजगार
दूसरी तरफ़ लाखों
फिक्स पगार और कांट्रैक्ट कर्मचारी बेज़ार
7वें वेतन आयोग में ₹18000 मासिक होने के बावजूद फिक्स और कांट्रैक्ट पगार ₹5500 और ₹10000 क्यों? pic.twitter.com/KngeBgLlVp

"The double whammy of BJP government - on one side the youths of the state are unemployed, while on other hand lakhs of contract and fixed salary workers condition is miserable.
"Despite Rs 18,000 salary per month as per the 7th Pay Commission, why only Rs 5,500 and Rs 10,000 is being paid to the fix and contract workers?" he asked.
Gandhi's question comes in the wake of the party's strategy to pose one question to Modi every day till the polling day on 9 December.
Gandhi on Sunday raised concerns over safety, health, education and crimes against women in the state.
On Saturday, he questioned Modi on "extraction" of high fees from students by government educational institutes in Gujarat.
