Youth should join politics, says Rahul Gandhi
"The doors of Youth Congress are open and anyone irrespective of caste, creed and religion can join, provided he follows Congress ideology and has no criminal background," Gandhi, who is on a three-day visit of the state, said, addressing a conference of Youth Congress workers here.
During the question and answer session, Gandhi spoke on eliminating corruption from the grassroot level and stressed the need for a corruption-free administration.
"If you are interested in developing the area, garner support from locals and get elected as an MLA instead of blaming the incompetent MLA for not carrying out development activities in that particular area," he said.
The Congress leader flew in from Naxal-affected backward district of Gadchiroli in eastern Vidharba to the hilly district Buldhana in the western region.
He addressed two meetings, one of Youth Congress workers and the second one of the other backward class (OBC) in Buldhana.
