In an interview with a leading news channel, PM Narendra Modi spoke about the performance of his government, the economy and the employment. While addressing the issue of employment, he gave a simple (and what was supposed to be a humble) example of the pakode wala’s economic model. He said,
“If someone opens a ‘pakoda’ shop in front of your office, does that not count as employment? The person’s daily earning of Rs 200 will never come into any books or accounts. The truth is massive people are being employed.”
