The Opposition, led by the Congress party has frequently slammed the ruling NDA government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a lack of job creation, to which PM Modi responded in an interview by giving a 'pakoda' seller example.

Senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram took to twitter to slam PM Modi assertion on pakoda sellers being employed by mocking that even begging should then be recognised as a job employment.

"Even selling pakodas is a 'job' said PM. By that logic, even begging is a job. Let's count poor or disabled persons who are forced to beg for a living  as 'employed' people," tweeted Chidambaram.

"Earlier it was claimed that a Mudra loan of Rs 43,000 (average loan size) created at least one new job. Show me one person who can 'create' a new job out of Rs 43,000 investment," he added.

"Another minister wanted MGNREGA workers to be counted as holding jobs. So they are 'job' holders for 100 days and jobless for 265 days!" Chidambaram tweeted, expanding his critique to other ministers.

On January 19, PM Modi in an interview with a TV channel introduced the now infamous concept of pakoda economy.

"If a person sells 'pakodas' and takes home Rs 200 every evening, will it be considered employment or not?" PM Modi said.

Chidambaram's tweets were criticised by the public, who said that there was a clear difference between selling pakodas and begging.

BSP is OF the Sarvajan Samaj, BY the Sarvajan Samaj and FOR the Sarvajan Samaj ( All Societies)! BJP is OFF the Sarvajan Samaj, BUY the Sarvajan Samaj and FAR the Sarvajan Samaj !! https://defence.pk/…/no-prime-minister-selling-pakod…/page-2 Selling Pakodas is Not Employment Even selling pakodas is a 'job' said Murderer of democratic institutions (Modi)including begging is a job counting poor or disabled persons who are forced to beg for a living as 'employed' people. That is how he has solved unemployment problem after gobbling the master Key by tampering the fraud EVMs to win elections for BJP (Brashtachar Jiyadha Psychopaths) remotely controlled by just 1% intolerant, cunning, crooked number one terrorists of the world, violent, militant ever shooting, lynching lunatic,mentally retarded chitpavan brahmin Rakshasa Swayam Sevaks (RSS) for their stealth, shadowy, discriminatory manusmriti hindutva cult that believes that the chitpavan brahmins are 1st rate athmas (souls), kashatrias, vysias, shudhras as 2nd, 3rd, 4th rate souls and the aboriginal SC/STs/OBCs/ converted Religious Minorities and the poor Upper Castes as having no souls at all so that they could commit any atrocities on them. But the Buddha never believed in any soul. He said all are equal. Hence Babasaheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar the Architect of the Marvelous Modern Constitution imbibed this fact which is now negated by the fraud EVMs. The fact that the Modi actually celebrates this kind of ’employment’ as a major success of his Mudra scheme is even more worrisome. Modi will now deposit Rs. 15 Lakhs in everybody's bank accounts as promised by him for his Naukri chodo, Vyapar karo scheme
