Here is the full transcript of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s interview with ANI ANI: You have mentioned in previous interviews that the methodology of computing job numbers is outdated and the true reflection is contrary to the present data available.

Wary that any more opposition or amendments to the Bill may be used by the BJP against them in the 2019 elections, opposition parties unanimously adopted the legislation with the amendments made by the Lok Sabha.
