Jaipur: Proving wrong the party leaders, who
were initially sceptical about Rahul Gandhi`s experiments for
increasing participation of youngsters in Congress, Rajasthan
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday said the party general
secretary`s efforts are reaping good results.

Speaking at a one-day conference of the Youth Congress,
Gehlot said even party`s own leaders were initially not very
confident of the success of the youth programmes initiated by
Gandhi but crores of youngsters have in recent times entered
the organisation through direct elections.

"The success of this programme is the reason they are
being discussed all over the country," he said.

The Chief Minister said the initiatives to attract youth
from the grassroot to the party organisation has given a new
life to it, as even a village youth with no political backing
can now break into the party league through direct elections.
