My Responsibility Lies with the Youth Congress: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Oct 6 (IANS) Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi reiterated Wednesday that his primary responsibility was to revive the Youth Congress and get the youth to join politics.

"I have responsibility of the Youth Congress and I am doing that," Gandhi told reporters at a press conference here.

He added that his main aim was to get young people into politics. "I think that Indian polity's most important task is to bring youth into politics," he said, adding that the youth comprised 70 percent of the population and yet don't play a role.

Gandhi admitted that "political groups were designed in such a way that youth cannot enter (politics)".

To a pointed question whether India would ever see a prime minister in his thirties, Gandhi, 40, said: "India has a very capable prime minister."

On the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) calling him "immature", he retorted: "That's fine. They are fine to call me immature."
