On Thursday, also he announced his protest by running in the state Assembly. "I am expressing anger against the state government. I want to tell them about the pain of the youth of the state. There are 23 states where youths of Rajasthan are not being given jobs. Even the state government is not giving them jobs. So, where will the youth go?" Yadav asked. "People are helpless due to the irregularities in recruitment exams. I cannot fight with these goons, so I have to express my anger," he said.
