Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee chief Birajit Sinha on Thursday alleged that corruption has thrived in the NDA Government regime and attacks on democracy have intensified.
�We will organise the movement to lend support to the Youth Congress� Bharat Bachao Andolan. All India Youth Congress president Keshav Chandra Yadav and vice president Srinivas BV will join other party leaders in the agitation on that day,� Sinha told reporters at the Congress Bhavan here.
