GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 7: To rope in youth from the Kashmir valley, the All India Youth Congress is holding a mega talent hunt in Jammu and Kashmir from Wednesday.
To begin with the party will hold an open talent hunt at Srinagar at the PCC headquarters, M A Road, on Monday. “We need young and enthusiastic people ready to shoulder the responsibilities of the president Youth Congress,” in charge of Indian Youth Congress, Sanjay Banerjee, told a news conference.
“Any one less than 35 years of age can appear in the talent hunt,” Banerjee said, adding that hunt was being organized across the country on the AICC general secretary, Rahul Gandhi’s directive.
The previous body of J&K Youth Congress has already been dissolved relieving Muhammad Amin Bhat from the post of its president. “The hunt is open to all. Anyone from Congress or any other party whether experienced or not can appear in the hunt,” Banerjee said.
He said the 2-day Hunt would select eight candidates, four each from the two regions, who will later be sent to Delhi for final selection by the leadership.
A 5-member committee comprising the Union Minister, Jatin Parsad, senior leader, Jagdish Tytler, AICC secretary and Member Parliament, Jatinder Singh, former president of NSUI, Saleem Ahmed, and president AIYCC, Ashok Tanwar, has been appointed to interview the candidates.
Addressing a separate new conference in Jammu, IYC general secretary, Nadeem Javed, Saturday appealed the youth associated with the Congress to come out in large number to participate in the talent hunt.
Meanwhile, sources in the youth wing said the loyalists of the Union Health Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Pradesh Congress president, Prof Saif-ud-din Soz, were at loggerheads.
“The blue eyed boys of both the senior leaders are busy impressing their high-ups to get inducted into the new youth wing and making all out efforts to grab its presidential chair,” sources said.
