Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The youth wing of the Madhya Pradesh Congress staged a protest against the state government regarding rising inflation, corruption, unemployment, irregularities in exams, atrocities on tribal, etc in the city on Thursday.

Congress leaders marched towards CM house raising slogans from Vyapam Square but they were stopped at Red Cross Hospital square as the police put up barricades there. Later, they were repelled by water cannons.

The police also detained Youth Congress national president Srinivas BV and some other activists.

Congress State President Kamal Nath, leader of Opposition Govind Singh, former PCC Chief Suresh Pachauri, Arun Yadav, former Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh, former minister Sajjan Verma and other senior leaders of Congress were present in the protest.

According to reports, there were around 2,000 protestors on the occasion.

Addressing the protesters at a nearby crossing, state Congress chief Kamal Nath has said the BJP government has failed to rein in inflation, unemployment and corruption.

The state government has also failed to prevent the atrocities that are being committed on the members of tribal communities, the former chief minister alleged.

The BJP has police, money and administration to use against the opposition, but it would not stop Congress' protest, Nath said.

Before the protest, Nath appealed to the youth on Twitter to join in the "fight to save Madhya Pradesh." "The MP government wants to quell the voice of the youth. We are going to form a government in 2023 in MP," former Union minister Arun Yadav told reporters after police detained party leaders.
