Rahul vows to democratise Youth Congress

July 18, 2009 12:11 IST

All India Congress Committee general secretary Rahul Gandhi has assured that youth Congress organisations across the country will be democratised within the next two years to make the party more effective in serving the people.

On a visit to the Northeast on Saturday, Rahul said he loved visiting this part of the country, "particularly Assam, as it exposes me to a very beautiful part of the country."

Rahul also congratulated the Congress workers in Assam for the hard work they had put in to ensure the success of the party in the state.

Rahul told members of the Youth Congress that 'sophisticated' methods were being used in various states to prevent enrolment of bogus members and encourage the democratisation of the organisation.

The Gandhi scion pointed out that many Youth Congress leaders, who had proven themselves through their work, had been given tickets to contest the Lok Sabha.

He also interacted with students from different institutions in the state in a function organised by the Assam unit of the National Students' Union of India at Rabindra Bhawan in Guwahati.

Rahul is on a one-day visit to the state launch the first training programme for NSUI and Youth Congress workers for the implementation of the 'Aam Admi Ka Sipahi' Programme at the National Games stadium in Guwahati.
