New Delhi, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 22 June 2019, 12:21 AM

Union Minister Prakash Javadekar today trashed the reports of job crisis in India. Instead, he raised concerns on the data sampling techniques. Talking to News Nation’s Deepak Chaurasia during Hamari Sansad Sammelan’s Session 7, Javadekar said that India will be the fourth leading economy in the world. The statement comes at a time when there are reports coming in that Modi government has set up two Cabinet committees to deal with the two crucial issues. It is perhaps for the first time that the Cabinet committees on the two issues have been set up. A formal notification by the Cabinet Secretariat was issued earlier this month. Both the panels, respectively on Investment and Growth and on Employment and Skill Development, is being headed by the Prime Minister.

It should be noted that the unemployment rate in 2017-18 was 6.1 per cent, corroborating the pre-election leaked report that had claimed joblessness at a 45-year high. On the contentious issue of delimitation in Jammu and Kashmir, Javadekar that, “Union Home Minister Amit Shah reviewing situation in Jammu and Kashmir.” 'Modi Hai Toh Mumkin Hai', said Javadekar on abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir is under President’s rule since June 2018. “If delimitation is implemented in Jammu and Kashmir, it will automatically lead to an increase in the number of seats from the Jammu region. The move may open the door for a Hindu chief minister,” said an official attached to the Jammu and Kashmir division of the Union home ministry. The state has so far had only Muslim chief ministers.

Delimitation has been a constant demand by the Kashmir BJP leaders. Some said that there was a possibility of the new central government constituting a delimitation commission to redraw the scope and size of the assembly segments and determine the number of seats to be reserved for Schedules Castes.
