A Hindi newspaper clipping is doing rounds over social media claiming that forced retirement of Indian Railway employees will begin soon.

The Facebook caption reads, “कांग्रेस की सरकार थी तो रेलवे में नौकरी मिलती थी, मोदी सरकार में रेलवे में जिसकी नौकरी है वो भी छीनी जा रही है. और वोट दो मोदी को.
(English Translation: Under Congress government, there used to be jobs in railways. And now the current Government has taken away the jobs of the railway employees. Go ahead and vote for Modi.)
