Guwahati, Sep 14 (UNI) The Indian Youth Congress (IYC) has adopted the North East declaration to give special attention to the North East.
Addressing mediapersons here today, IYC President Ashok Tanwar and Secretary Chandan Yadav, besides state president Rekibuddin Ahmed, declared that districtwise training camps would be organised in all the NE states to address their problems.
