बेरोजगार युवाओं को भत्ते के रूप में 600 रुपये देने की शुरुआत भी मुख्यमंत्री रहते हुए मैंने ही की थी जिसे मेनिफेस्टो में बढ़ाकर हमने 3500 किया था, अब 1 मार्च से लड़कों को 3000 और लड़कियों को 3500 रुपये बेरोजगारी भत्ता मिलेगा। #Rajasthan pic.twitter.com/yOE1WGxmFL

Significantly, before the election, Congress President of Rajasthan Sachin Pilot had promised unemployed that if they came to power, they would give unemployment allowance and a campaign was organized by Youth Congress and NSUI workers to fill the form with unemployed. The BJP was going to the agitation on February 8 on this issue and was constantly asking the government to start the allowance for the unemployed. Responding to this, Secretary Ashok Gehlot said that the government has been in power for just over a month, but from now on we have started fulfilling the promises made in the manifesto, it shows how serious we are to our promises.
4 lakh unemployed registered in 3 months
Although it is not easy for the government to implement this scheme, since the Congress and BJP have promised to give unemployment allowance in the manifesto, after that in the last 3 months about 4 lakh people have registered themselves in the employment office as unemployed. In such a case, for giving employment allowance, the Rajasthan Government already engaged in raising money for farmers’ debt waiver would haveto bear a financial burden.
