Remembering Rajivji

Indian Youth Congress organized a National Program Hum Mein Hain Rajiv (Hum mein hain Rajiv) to mark 25th Death Anniversary of Late Rajiv Gandhi at Indira Gandhi Stadium on 21st May, 2016. The Program started with an Introductory speech by IYC President Amarinder Singh Raja Brar. He said “Rajiv Gandhi was not a person but an Idea, that is still alive within us. Each and Every Youth of the Country has Rajiv in them as he bought the revolution in Science and Technology in building the Nation.

 

Congress President Smt. Sonia Gandhi said “Rajiv ji had introduced computers in the country, allowed people to vote at the age of 18 to strengthen our democracy. Forces like Terrorism and intolerance took away Rajiv from us but cannot take his ideology. No one can achieve success for long time if he works against ideology. Many Senior C o n g r e s s Leaders made their presence and inspired youth with their speech on the life, work and Nation building activities of Late Rajiv Gandhi. Prominent Leaders present among were AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh, Sheila Dixit, Shri R.P.N Singh, Ghulam Nabi Azad, C.P. Joshi, Oscar Fernandes, Raj Babbar, Ashok Tanwar, Kumari Shailaja, Ajit Jogi, Shakil Ahmed, Shri Janardhan Dwivedi and Jitu Patwari.
