JOB MYTH of #ModiSarkar2

INDIA LOST 45 MILLION JOBS between 2012 & 2018 !!! India’s first annual labour survey (PLFS 2018) provides an update on India’s employment data. It's available here.

The Thread explains how I arrived at 45 Mn Job Losses.
Population in 2012: 1233 Million (Mn)
Labor Participation % 2012: 55.9%

So number of ppl either looking or have a job: 1233 * 55.9% = 689mn

Employement Rate 2012: 54.7%
People employed: 1233 * 54.7% =674.5mn
Unemployment Rate: 2%, 14.8mn
Population in 2018: 1336 Million (Mn)
Labor Participation % 2018: 49.8%

So number of ppl either looking or have a job: 1336 * 49.8% = 665mn

Employement Rate 2018: 46.8%
People employed: 1336 * 46.8% =625mn
Unemployment Rate/People: 6%, 40.8mn

Tweet thread on #Kashmir #Article370 #Constitutional changes.
I fear the travails and tribulations of the people of #JammuAndKashmir will continue for a very long time before they get better. The changes wrought on 5 August 2019 by #ModiSarkar2 are driven by ideology and politics
They are not driven by pragmatic considerations of what is good for the people of that troubled region of India. #ModiSarkar2 argues that with the special status gone development beckons and a new dawn starts. What they don't explain is what about the previous regime prevented it
Much will depend on how the changes are implemented but the very manner in which they were pushed through Parliament, the various sleights of hand and specious legal tricks, and the deployment of troops to #lockdown Kashmir - all these bode ill for the future

It's not just in India then. But #India under #ModiSarkar2 may be even further along on the trial-to-rollout pathway. @MahuaMoitra has done us a service by putting it on the #LokSabha record. irishtimes.com/opinion/fintan…
Now read this paragraph from Fintan O'Toole's essay and tell me you do not recognise recent events in #India.
Then, I invite you to read this paragraph. Again tell me you do not recognise recent or even ongoing events in India.

1⃣ In #Uttarakhand, increasingly warmer winters are making #Rhododendrons bloom earlier than usual; during February-March instead of its usual schedule of March-May.

The season is not the best time for #Rhododendrons, because late winter rains in February-March wash away the blooms, affecting local population dependent on making juice, jams and jellies from the flowers.
