New Delhi : The political system needed to be changed to fight corruption, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi told members of the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) at a rally here Monday while exhorting the young to come and join politics.
“The biggest corruption is in our political system, and if it is not changed then we cannot fight against corruption,” Gandhi said at the two-day IYC convention that began here Monday morning.
“The only way to change the political system is to bring youth to politics. The Congress party has opened the doors for the youth to join politics,” he said.
The MP from Amethi, Uttar Pradesh, appealed to the youth to join politics in large numbers and fight for the rights of the poor.
“You don’t need to belong to a political family or know a political heavyweight to join IYC. Anyone can come and join the politics as there is a free and fair process,” he said.
