The National President of Youth Congress took a dig at the PM and said, what a shameful birthday for the Indian Prime Minister, the whole country is wishing him a Happy National Unemployment Day.
The group has decided to celebrate ‘Jumla Diwas’ with activities like banging utensils and clapping — a method PM Modi had invented to keep the citizens upbeat during the first lockdown last year.
