Asaduddin Owaisi, the leader of the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), used a joke to criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the high unemployment rate in the nation at Danilimda, Gujarat. He claimed to have encountered a young man at a hotel who used humour to describe his predicament.
“When will you get a job with the government, the girl I want to marry me questioned. Usne mujhse aa kar kaha ki main jis ladki se shaadi karna chahta hun “Papa ladka dhund rahe hain, aapki sarkari naukri kab lagegi. According to Mr. Owaisi, the man reportedly told him in a rally on Tuesday that “My father is on the hunt for a groom).”
Mr. Owaisi said quoting the man, “Modi sarkar par bharosa mat karo, tum shadi kar lo” (Do not trust the Modi government, you get married), in an apparent dig at PM Modi for the dearth of public employment in the nation.
