Cong for encouraging younger generation: Patil
Senior leader Shivraj Patil on Monday said Congress recognises the need for encouraging youngsters for occupying key positions.
"Many have pointed out the need for infusing young blood into the party and this idea is accepted by the session," Patil said in his reply to the political resolution, which was unanimously adopted.
The suggestion of including youth into the decision making body came not just from the younger people in the party but also from those who are not young, Patil said. He also assured that the session has recognised their feelings and accepts the views.
Showering praise on Gandhi for his realistic remarks that Congress should be strengthened wherever it is weak, the veteran Congress leader said "if we have persons who think in these terms some of us who are in the fag end of our lives can feel that the future is safe in the hands of leaders of younger generation".
In an apparent reply to detractors of the Gandhi family, Patil said, "some may ask what is the contribution of these youngsters for acquiring big posts. Well, the recognition (by the party) that there should be continuity and younger generation should be kept engaged all the time itself should be their contribution."
