Former Madhya Pradesh and Congress state President Kamal Nath on Thursday said if his government was formed in the state, he would fill the backlog of recruitment to tackle rising unemployment.   

"I want to ask Shivraj Singh, what have you given? He has given inflation, corruption and unemployment. We will fill the backlog of recruitments. The biggest challenge in Madhya Pradesh is the future of our youth. Our priority would be to fill the vacancies so that the youth gets employment. Employment is our priority," he promised while addressing a poll rally in Mandla district.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was also present at the poll public rally, attacked the BJP government over women safety issue.

 "You must have seen the videos that are viral. The maximum number of girls going missing in the country has been reported in Madhya Pradesh. 1.5 lakh women and girls have gone missing in their rule. 17 incidents of rape take place daily...You must have seen the Ujjain incident. Madhya Pradesh is the leading state in the country as far as atrocities on tribals are concerned. The situation is becoming difficult here..."
