New Delhi. Participants of the Youth Fest-2018, called on the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, at Rashtrapati Bhavan today.
Speaking on the occasion, the President noted that this is the first ever National Youth Fest organised by the Indian Red Cross Society.

The President noted that the Youth Fest provided participants an opportunity to understand different humanitarian activities of the Red Cross. He expressed happiness that such a youth-focused initiative has been taken by the Indian Red Cross Society which is the largest statutory humanitarian organisation in India. He congratulated the Society for this initiative.
The President said that the Indian Red Cross Society will turn 100 years ‘young’ in 2020. He was sure that it will continue to carry on with its laudable activities.
