The youth wing of the ruling Indian National Congress party is launching a monthly magazine that is said to be the brainchild of party general secretary Rahul Gandhi, IANS reports. Young March will be the mouth piece of the Youth Congress the way Sandesh is to Congress.

Youth Congress general secretary Chayanika Uniyal will be the editor of the magazine. If it is positioned as Rahul Gandhi’s magazine, Young March will no doubt be keenly followed by thousands of party men across India. Rahul Gandhi, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family that has produced three prime ministers, is widely expected to head India’s government one day. For now, the 39-year old politician is busy rejuvenating the Congress organization, with special focus on the youth unit.

There has also been speculation among the Capital’s journos that National Herald, which had temporarily suspended operations last year, will be resurrected soon. The Herald House on Bahadurshah Zafar Marg, New Delhi’s Fleet Street, is being renovated. Journalists who were associated with the paper say don’t know of any concrete plans. Congress treasurer Motilal Vohra, who heads the board of Associated Journals Ltd, publisher of the erstwhile Herald, could not be reached for comment. Herald was founded by Jawaharlal Nehru, iconic Congress leader and India’s first prime minister.

  1. Great news. Hope to see the magazine soon.
