Thiruvananthapuram: Giving a boost to his party ahead of Lok Sabha elections, Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi today took part in ‘Yuva Kerala Yatra' organized by the Youth Congress.

Gandhi spent about 10 minutes in the padayatra at Noornad in Alappuzha district and was cheered by party workers who thronged in large numbers.

He waved at those who converged on the sides of roads by standing on a vehicle.

The “Yuva Kerala Yatra” campaign was led by State Youth Congress President Dean Kuriakose, highlighting the themes of secularism and non-violent society.

The yatra was inaugurated by KPCC president and state Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala last month at Kasargod in north Kerala.

Earlier, Gandhi who arrived at Kochi International Airport on his way to join the Yatra dropped in at a Primary Health Centre located between Kochi and Alappuzha.
