Kanimozhi also criticised the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre of doing nothing concrete to address unemployment in the country, which is at a 45-year-high.
She recalled the shrewd measures taken by the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre in 2008 to save the country’s economy from global recession.
