BENGALURU: Mohammed Haris Nalapad, son of Shantinagar Congress MP NA Haris, took over the chairmanship of the Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress Committee (KPYCC) at an event here on Thursday.
While “blessing” Nalapad, KPCC Chairman DK Shivakumar promised that a separate manifesto would be prepared to address issues affecting unemployed youth. “We will come to power in 2023 and burn copies of the NEP – the ‘Nagpur Education Policy’,” he said.

Congratulating Nalapad and his team, Assembly Opposition Leader Siddaramaiah made a clear call to prepare for the 2023 Assembly elections, expecting the Youth Congress to play a key role . “Coming to power is not as important for us as removing the BJP. People in the state have thought along these lines,” he said, advising young people against falling prey to the divisive politics of religion.

“Young people should read the Constitution of India. The hijab was not a problem for the poor and even minorities, as girls had been wearing it for several years. But they made it a problem. I have never seen students wearing saffron stoles. The RSS and Sangh Parivar provided them to the youths to bolster the BJP’s vote bank,” he alleged.

All India Youth Congress President BV Srinivas who was sworn in Nalapad called on KPYCC members to work round the clock to bring the party to power in Karnataka and Central, adding that the social media campaign of the party should reach all members, even at the local level.

“Taking charge as members of the office and relaxing at home won’t help. You can’t become leaders by just hanging around great leaders. Work hard, rest less until the 2024 election in Lok Sabha,” he said, adding, “Learn from the sacrifices of AICC President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi who took no position of power for the benefit of the party and its workers. .”

Addressing the rally, Nalapad said, “I repent for the mistake I had made and realized how serious it was as I had to wait a year for this very reason to take assumes the position of Chairman (of the KPYCC).” He was referring to the 2018 incident involving a drunken brawl, in which he was accused of attacking a youngster in a pub. Stating that he will rectify his mistakes, he said he was looking forward to hosting the party under the leadership of senior leaders.
