He said, “One can talk on the facts but not on the falsehoods and if the Congress party is so keen, can they show their record on how many employees during the ten years of UPA tenure when the economy was down and India was the epic center of impropriety and corruption.”

“If the economy is 7.4 percent plus if the national highways are being constructed, if the manufacturing is picking up, and if India’s economy is globally recognized, that means that country is creating more and more jobs,” he added.
