New Delhi: Questioning the functioning of UPA government in the wake of growing unemployment, poverty and violence, a BJP member in Rajya Sabha today termed the situation as "very bad" and demanded immediate steps to address the issues.

Raising the matter during Zero Hour, Rajiv Pratap Rudy said, "Unemployment in the country is growing, poverty is growing, violence is growing...This is a big question on the functionality of government of this country. Situation is very bad, you need to address it."

Rudy said it is shocking that as per the National Sample Survey Organisation`s (NSSO) report, employment generation has declined to two million during 2005-10 in comparison to 60 million in 2000-05.

This rapid decline in employment somehow failed to catch the attention of the people, he said adding that what was worrisome was "casual employment exceeded regular jobs."
