Jaipur, Nov 25: Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi has described himself as "old" and only playing the role of a catalyst for strengthening the youth wing of the party.
Speaking to reporters here, he said, "If you do a demographic analysis of the population, I am old. I am 39. If you see the population of the country, 60 per cent of our population is below 40."
The Congress General Secretary said he has not empowered the youth of the country or the Youth Congress but the youth have empowered themselves.
"Rahul Gandhi has not empowered the Youth Congress. The youth empowered themselves in the Youth Congress. I am a catalyst. I am not the leader of the Youth Congress. I am not even a member of the Youth Congress. My job is to make it a dynamic and powerful organisation," he said.
He said, "We want them (youth) to come out with their leaders. We want them to say this is the man we want to lead us in the Youth Congress."
