Donna toe said the bull was back in Britain's cooled this extension. This s flexible aside expected and so little shelter. Than I expected about the still enough to find the best possible solution. Please do not waste this time. Mrs may aknowledge that was huge frustration with the delay. I do not pretend the next few weeks will be easy. All there is a simple way to break the deadlock in parliament. But we have a duty as politicians to find a way to fulfill the democratic decision of the referendum. So what do businesses make all Stephen Phipps and chief executive of manufacturing lobby group? Make you k so the sector was ready suffering because of Brexit uncertainty Hawthorne, stockpiling, we have seventy percent of the not investing at the moment and more worrying right now is we have you opinion, customers now delaying contracts for manufactured goods coming from the UK.

But it still faces a number of challenges this year's election, which begins today is highlighting one in particular jobs. Or the lack of them. The BBC's Samir Hashmi reports from the busy streets of Mumbai the last five years, and he has gone to me has seven percent growth every year, but unemployment is at the forty five year, high more than half the population in this country is under the age of twenty five and India needs to create eight to ten million new jobs every year to absorb it's young folk force. I went to a job fair in the southern Indian city of coachee where we met five thousand graduates toned up for that event. Only two hundred and fifty getting hired and we smoke people there the communists have been to fifty job interviews company. See they're looking for candidates with experience I've lost one highest allies I had experienced, but there are many people's who's ready to work in less salaries. But problem is that there are not many opportunities for them to where the people who told us about the problems facing. But if you look at India, why is India facing this problem there to issues private companies are not investing enough. It's really the government investing, which is creating jobs and unless private investment goes up. They won't be enough jobs in the private sector, which is. The bulk employer in the country. The second problem is even though there's millions of graduates that pass out every year with degrees. Most of them are unemployable because they lacked the skill sets the employers require the courses that are being taught in schools and colleges are very outdated. Some yet chucker were-they is managing director of a private company. And this is what he told us. I think more than unemployment my unemployed ability where you have a large number of young people with a lot of potential, but they don't have the right skills and the right direction for the job that already exist. I think when it comes to government they have to really go back to the drawing board with the curriculum. If they really want to solve the skill gap problem that our country has the degree itself is a blue value anymore because employers know, that, you know, there are millions of graduates with the same degree how you distinguish between all the opposition parties led by route gun the happy attacking premise Jenner in the more the on his economic record. They say that not only in of jobs have been created. There's a huge agrarian crisis more than fifty percent of the popular. Depends on farming. And they have really been struggling to make money now, prime minister more the has rolled out a lot of subsidies for him. In fact, both opposition and prime minister Modi's poppy have announced that if they come back to power they will unveil favorable policies for farmers can help increase their income. And that many say will be one of the crucial issues in this election in Mumbai on the BBC some of your hush money for marketplace. And from a much quieter London.
