Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday appealed to the tribal youth of Jharkhand to participate in politics as this was “the only solution” to their problems.

If the government does not listen, I will support you and open the doors of our organisation.” During the interactive session, he focused on the development of the tribal youth. First,

Mr. Gandhi visited Dumka district, then he went to Hazaribag and finally arrived to here. He interacted with students and some retired Heavy Engineering Corporation workers. He said the tribal youth should make their voice heard politically at the panchayat-level, State-level and even in the national plane and “see how the world will response to their queries. No leader will be imposed on you and you can choose your own.”

“You can be a leader as well. You don't have to depend on anybody's help as you can help yourself,” he added.
