New Delhi, Oct 2 (PTI) The workers of Indian Youth Congress on Saturday held a ‘Tiranga march’ on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi to give a message of peace and harmony, a statement said.

IYC national president Srinivas BV said that to take the country on the path of progress, there was a need to implement Mahatma Gandhi's ideologies even in the present times.
