DAVANGERE: Rahul Gandhi, general secretary of the All-India Congress Committee, will inaugurate the State-level Youth Congress workers’ conference here on March 9.

Disclosing this to presspersons here on Friday, D. Basavaraj, general secretary of the Davangere District Congress Committee (DCC), said that over one lakh Youth Congress workers from all over the State would take part in the meet.

Referring to complaints by some senior leaders that meetings to elicit the opinions of party workers on the coming elections were not held democratically, Mr. Basavaraj attributed it to a “communication gap”.

He said the leaders would be taken into confidence and their apprehensions removed. He appealed to the leaders not to make their views public.

Leaders K.G. Shivakumar, Dinesh K. Shetty and Jagadish were present.
