AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday launched the LEARN Project, a unique initiative for young men and women in Hyderabad to participate in parliamentary democracy and set the agenda for the 2019 elections.

As 50 per cent of India's population is below the age of 25 and 65 per cent of the population is below the age of 35, the Hyderabad MP is a strong advocate for increased participation of youth in parliamentary politics.

LEARN Project is the next step in platforming young people and ensuring that their voice is heard, said a leader of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).

The project will include special activities for youth through which they can engage directly with Asaduddin Owaisi, the party said in a statement.

"Our youth need to know how to use constitutional tools in order to strengthen Indian democracy and MPs need to know what young people expect from them. LEARN Project is my effort to platform your aspirations and visions", the MP tweeted earlier.

These activities will include Youth Baithaks, Youth Parliaments, Townhall events and Heritage Walks.

Meanwhile on Sunday, following the CBI raids in West Bengal, along with other regional party leaders like Akhilesh Yadav, MK Stalin, HD Deve Gowda, Chandrababu Naidu and Arvind Kejriwal, Asaduddin also condemned the raids.

The MP wrote on Twitter, “Modi will not be permanent, but his sarkar’s unrepentant attack on our institutions will take a lot more time to recover from.

An NIA that investigates marriages, an NSSO that can’t report figures honestly & a CBI that can’t go week without bad press.”

On Sunday, the CBI visited West Bengal to arrest Kolkata Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with a chit fund scam. However, the police in return detained the CBI, and even the CM Mamata Banerjee staged a dharna against the raids.
