A group of ousted AP Youth Congress office-bearers and presidents of district units called on AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi and urged him to take necessary steps to hold elections to the youth wing.

The YC leaders, who were removed from their posts in the wake of talent hunt conducted by the Indian Youth Congress, met Mr. Gandhi at his residence on Thursday.

Sources said they requested him to look into the complaints of alleged irregularities in appointments to the new body and hold elections to the State and district units.

It is understood that Mr. Gandhi promised to look into their grievances.
