  • Description

    Pursuing his great interest in the Youth of India, Mr. Pandit Nehru inaugurated the second convention of the All India Youth Congress (youth wing of the Indian National Congress) at Lucknow on October 27.

    The city was gaily decorated with arches and gates to welcome the great Indian leader. Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in the streets as he drove through the city.

    Observers from USA, Russia, Egypt, Indonesia and China attended the convention, huge crowds smashed their way into the stadium and there was a wild stampede.

    Mr. Nehru, himself, took a hand in the control and direction of people to help bring some order to the occasion, which began with a colourful procession.

    It is estimated that almost half a million people attended the inauguration.
