National Students' Union of India (NSUI), a student wing of Congress on Saturday held â€œpakoda protestâ€ against Prime Minister Narendra Modiâ€™s remark over the creation of jobs.
Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi during an Interview to a private news channel had said that anyone earning Rs 200 by selling pakodas (Indian snack) canâ€™t be called unemployed.
PM Modiâ€™s statement was mocked by the main Opposition Congress, which said the Modi govt has failed to create jobs in the country.
The NSUI workers in Madhya Pradeshâ€™s Shivpuri prepared Pakodaâ€™s by the roadside with a poster in the background reading â€œPradhanmantri Pakoda Rojgar Yojna (Prime Ministerâ€™s Pakoda employment scheme)â€.

Reacting to Congressâ€™s â€œPakoda Protest,â€ Madhya Pradesh BJP workers protested outside partyâ€™s office in Bhopal and raised slogans.
BJP President Amit Shah, during his maiden Rajya Sabha speech, had sharply rebutted on Congressâ€™s Pakoda jibe and said Pakoda sellers are self-employed.
