Pimpri: Former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar here alleged that some four crore jobs, which were created during the previous UPA government’s regime in the country, were lost in the last five years.

Pawar, who inaugurated the NCP Lok Sabha seat candidate Parth Pawar’s poll office at Kalbhornagar on Saturday, said that there was need to create two crore jobs every year and thus 10 crore jobs in the last five years.

A students rally was organised by the Nationalist Students Congress on the occasion.

Ajit Pawar advised the assembled youths to shun communal thinking and instead asked them to respect other religions. He told the youngsters to follow their traditions, but at the same time to participate in the festivals and programmes of other religious communities. The youth should keep themselves updated by reading or listening to the news and other literature on social media, he said.

Some youths respectfully touched the feet of Ajit Pawar at the programme. Referring to this, Pawar advised the youths not to bow before the political leaders.

“The present political leaders are no longer like the politicians of the past. Instead, bow before your parents and senior citizens,” said Pawar.
