Speaking at a jan sabha organised in support of Sheilza Bhatia, the party’s candidate from the constituency, he said that people “do not have the courage” to admit that the party has fared poorly in governance.
Punjab has 11.24 lakh, unemployed people, whereas Haryana, which has a smaller population, the number of unemployed people are 20.20, lakh, the Swaraj India leader said, adding that out of these, 4.5 lakh are either graduate or have a higher degree.
Yadav, who was here in connection with his ‘Jan Sarokar Yatra’, has already announced that his Swaraj India will contest all 90 seats in state in the elections due later this year. His outfit has also announced a number of candidates.
“We have decided to contest the upcoming Haryana assembly polls. We will give one-third seats to women and one-third to the youth,” Yadav, who was accompanied by the party’s state unit president Rajeev Godara, told a news conference here.
