As part of the mission, the party’s youth icon is participating in an interaction with young achievers and intellectuals from various domains at the Palace Grounds here on Saturday.

“He will interact with a chosen group of about 200-250 social activists, doctors, sportspersons, IT professionals, teachers and lawyers,” said a Congress leader, who is part of the preparations for the event.

The interaction, to be held away from the media glare, is the first-of-its-kind where achievers would be free to air their views on issues ranging from improving the economic condition of farmers, access for good education for poor children, greater social security for minorities and other weaker sections, improving the infrastructure, big push for research and development, boosting manufacturing sector and making full use of Indian talent in knowledge sector.The best of the suggestions would be incorporated in the Congress manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections and also while formulating a Youth Policy for the country, sources said.

Rahul had held two similar interactions in Delhi.

Sachin Pilot, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Manish Tewari are scheduled to participate in the interaction.
