NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday attacked the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over the issues of employment and education, and urged the youth to stick to this agenda in the upcoming assembly polls.

Citing a media report, Gandhi said that in Uttar Pradesh, 16.5 lakh youth lost their jobs in the last five years and four crore people gave up hope of jobs.

"But @myogiadityanath ji neither talks nor tweets on this. Because he knows that if the curtain is lifted then the secret will be revealed," the Congress general secretary said in a tweet in Hindi.

"Youngsters, stick to the agenda of employment," she said.

In another tweet in Hindi, Gandhi alleged that the Yogi Adityanath government made "massive" cuts in the education budget of Uttar Pradesh in five years.

If the budget would have been more, then the youth would have gotten new universities, internet, scholarships, libraries and hostels, Gandhi said.

"Youngsters, this is the real agenda of this election. Ask questions on this and give a befitting reply with the power of your vote to the one who misleads you," she said.

    UP can not provide necessary things for its citizens because of its population. Rest of the States (particularly in the south which has high DGDP) in the country are paying for it in the name of distribution of GST. Politicians on the whole should preach/plead to population to have Birth Control. Lot of problems could be solved this way
