The Ideal Youth MLA award is conferred by the Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad Foundation to 16 young MLAs from different states and political parties of India.
The idea is to encourage youth participation in politics by recognizing the positive change these young legislatures have brought in the society.
The Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad was launched in 2011 to revolutionise the mindset of younger generations; and to ignite their spirit to enter public life with a purpose to serve the nation.
It is an apolitical outfit and does not engage in any mainstream party politics.
It is transforming the outlook of youth and reaffirming their respect for politics, political leaders, democracy and its institutions.
It is raising their extent of sensitivity, awareness, involvement, responsiveness, access and says in political and democratic processes so that a healthy democratic system can be evolved to produce competent public leaders and policy makers, from the grassroots and from all walks of life. (ANI)
