Karnal/ Kurukshetra, Aug 28 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi has called on students of various educational institutes in Hisar, Kurukshetra and Karnal districts of Haryana to join politics.
'I urge today's youth to join Indian politics. If they want to bring a change in the society or to clean the system, then they have to take the initiative. We have to make full use of youth power in the overall development of the country,' he said, while interacting with students at the National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) in Karnal.
Highlighting the immense potential of Indian youth, he said: "I feel that if we are actually going to change politics here, we need your help. We are not going to be able to do it with the same group of people. And, we need to increase the rate at which youngsters like you are coming into this system."
Interacting with students in Kurukshetra, Gandhi accepted that there were several anomalies in the political system and revealed that it was his anger with the state of affairs in the nation that motivated him to bring about change.
"In the past, even I used to feel extremely angry when I used to see the state of affairs in the Indian political system. I used to be angry and upset at the rampant corruption in our system," he said.
He also interacted with students of the Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University in Hisar.
Congress MP and Union Minister Prithivi Raj Chauhan was also present. (ANI)
