New Delhi, Mar 2 (ANI): Hundreds of young men and women took to the streets of New Delhi protesting against militancy and corruption.

Holding placards against terrorism and corruption, the protesters sang patriotic songs.

Ad-film maker Prahlad Kakkar said that time has come for the youth of the nation to come forth to fight against issues like corruption and militancy.

"As you see, a large number of people have come here from their home. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar also came here to address these young people. It means that there is a need for a change," said Prahlad.

Maninder Jit Singh Bitta, President of All India Anti-Terrorist Front termed the mass gathering of youth as a beginning of new revolution.

"In Bengal, the freedom struggle was initiated by saints. A new revolution was started when East India Company started its operations in India. After this, freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and Subhas Chandra Bose were born and India won its freedom.

Another revolution has started and youth are raising revolutionary slogans against corruption and terrorism," said Bitta.

The rally was organised by the Art of Living Foundation, a non-profit organisation.

Many prominent people including Anirudh Behl, Magsaysay Awardee Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi took part in the rally. (ANI)
