Adivasis were being exploited and not given their due share in development, he said, adding that they should join politics and monitor their own development.
Stating that the Youth Congress would provide them proper leadership training for a better future, he said "the Youth Congress has changed the election pattern with grassroot workers to elect their own leaders.
"I appeal to tribal youths to join the Youth Congress and fight the upcoming Youth Congress organisational election. Congress will provide you scope to become a perfect leader," Gandhi said.
