In Ashta, Harpal Thakur, a member of the All India Congress Committee, said the country’s youth are being forced to watch Berozgar Diwas.
In 2014, when Modi took over as prime minister, he promised he would create two crores of jobs for young people.
According to his promise, 14 million young people should have found a job, Thakur said.
On the flip side, nearly 16 million people lost their jobs during Modi’s seven-year rule, he added.
In Seoni Malwa, Youth Congress workers waved slogans and begged in the market.
Former president of the Vidhan Youth Congress Sabha Roshan Kabde said young people across the country were not getting jobs.
The central government led by Modi has not developed any policies to provide jobs for young people.
Vice President of the Youth Congress Dharmendra Solanki, Mukesh Patel and others attended the protest.
