Chennithala urges youths to take YC membership

Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Ramesh Chennithala has called upon youngsters to join the Youth Congress, which is giving more political space for them to contribute to the country's progress and growth of society.

In a statement here on Wednesday, Mr. Chennithala said the organisational elections in the Youth Congress were being held for the first time after many years. The organisation hopes to attract youngsters from across communities to join it, particularly women and people belonging to weaker sections.

Mr. Chennithala recalled that it was the late Rajiv Gandhi who reduced the voting age, providing opportunities for the youth to come into politics. With the seeds of apolitical culture spreading through society, it has become very important to bring the youngsters into politics All India Congress Committee general secretary Rahul Gandhi had also expressed the view that the Youth Congress would give adequate representation to various segments of society, he said.
