Modi will be interacting with the rickshaw pullers at the multi-purpose Cantonment grounds.

The American India Foundation (AIF), which is one of the organisers of the prime minister’s interaction with rickshaw pullers, said that its ‘Rickshaw Sangh Programme’ enables rickshaw pullers to own their rickshaws by accessing formal credit.

The organisation said in a statement here that it aims to create life-changing assets and formalise the profession through access to key social benefits like an identity card, diver’s license, uniform and bank account.

    People in the city of Varanasi are in the bad habit of throwing all their muck on the road. Mr. Modi should plead with them that if you want your city to look neat detest away from this habit. As the city of Varansi, right in front of the Railway Station, has become quite crowded he should also announce a Metro for the city of Varanasi. With regard to cleaning of the banks of Ganges, he should announce a scheme that all the students who are preparing in their Board exams next year, if they come forward and do some cleaning up operations will be given 5% extra marks.

      Our worthy Prime Minister should meet those 23 lacs youths of Uttar Pradesh who have applied for 300 jobs of peon. There may be large number of ricksaw pullers to whom our Prime Minister is desirous to meet. Our Prime Minister must enquire from these rickshaw pullers how many of them are graduate,post graduate and holding professioal degrees. This question is very much genuine as our elected eitherGovernments in the states or at the Centre. Our Government had promised to give more than one crore jobs to our youths at the time of election and their hidden faces had come outbefore all of us. Whatever our leaders promise on the political stages to win election, they never do the same practically. Will our prime minister implement his promise to give employment to these youths or it will also be treated as fake slogan by the people as return of black money from abroad had been turned into false promise. It is shameful to think that one highly educated person cannot get employment as per his qualifications whereas politicians with criminal records, without having any professional qualification are enjoying all facilities for which they do not deserve at all..
