The Indian Youth Congress is the youth wing of the Indian National Congress Party, the largest democratic youth organisation in the world.
The Indian Youth Congress was a department of the Indian National Congress from the period just after 1947 until the late 1960s. While prime minister, Indira Gandhi gave the Youth Congress a new dimension by establishing it as a frontal organisation of the Congress Party, with the objective of doing social work and arguing against right-wing parties. Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi was the first elected governor of the Indian Youth Congress; he later became Minister of Information and Broadcasting and Parliamentary affairs in the Indian cabinet. Narayan Dutt Tiwari was the first President.
Smt. Sonia Gandhi, Hon’ble Congress President, gave a new ‘MANTRA’ to the Youth Congress – “Service, Leadership & Vision”
This has been the inspiring ideology behind a range of activities-agitational, service oriented, constructive and of the meaningful criticism of government policies, undertaken by Indian Youth Congress and its state units. Besides effectively implementing the call given by the Hon’ble Congress President and the Congress Party from time to time, Youth Congress has played a front line traditional role of agitational politics and constructive nation building activities.
