New Delhi : Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday hit out at Union Labour Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar over his "dearth of quality people" remark, asking him for figures of how many jobs have been given to north Indians in the last five years.

The Congress general secretary also posted a video of Gangwar making the remarks in front of reporters on Saturday in Bareilly, his Lok Sabha constituency.

Gangwar had said there was no dearth of employment opportunities in the country, but recruiters visiting north India complain of lack of "quality people" to fill vacancies, drawing flak from opposition leaders who accused him of insulting people of the region.

"Mr Minister, you have said such a big thing, so please also give the figures now. How many jobs you have given in the last five years and 100 days?

How many jobs you have given to north Indians in the last five years? How many jobs were given under the skill India programme?" Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi. "Do remember that figures of job losses are with the people," she added.
