IIT graduates' salaries has decreased, and Rahul Gandhi calls out the BJP for having a anti-education mindset

Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi, criticized the BJP government on Wednesday, asserting that the country's youth are grappling with demoralization and uncertainty due to rising unemployment exacerbated by an alleged anti-education stance.

Gandhi's remarks were prompted by a media report indicating a decline in the salaries of engineers graduating from Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in 2024 due to a slowdown in hiring.

He highlighted the impact of the economic downturn on prestigious institutions like the IITs, noting a continuous drop in campus placements and annual packages. According to Gandhi, the percentage of students failing to secure placements rose from 19% in 2022 to 38% this year.

The Congress leader lamented the financial burden on families investing in professional education, often resorting to high-interest loans, only to face a dearth of job opportunities or meager incomes.

Gandhi attributed these challenges to what he described as the BJP's "anti-education" mindset, which he claimed has placed the future of India's talented youth in uncertainty.

He questioned whether the Modi government has any plans to alleviate the crisis faced by hardworking Indian youth, pledging that the opposition will vigorously advocate for the youth and hold the government accountable for what he termed as "injustice".
