    WASHINGTON: In order to learn some tips of leadership, management and international relations, a team of young Indian parliamentarians led by Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi will attend classes at America's Yale University later this month.

    Classes will be held at the Yale University, New Haven Connecticut, from June 21 to 26 as part of India-Yale Parliamentary Leadership Programme.

    The programme launched in 2007 in collaboration with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and India-US Forum of Parliamentarians is aimed at providing insight and perspective to young leaders by giving them the exposure of different fields and ideas.

    Singhvi, member of Rajya Sabha (upper house), is the current chair of the India-US Forum of Parliamentarians.

    Though the list is yet to be finalised, former Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy of Janata Dal-Secular; Neeraj Shekhar, son of former Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar; besides BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar and his party MP from Himachal Pradesh Anurag Singh Thakur are among those expected to attend the programme.
