Promising 22 lakh government jobs within one March 2020 and 100 more working days for MGNREGA, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday released the election manifesto of the party.
It assures the farmers of the country that loan default will no longer be a criminal offence if Congress comes to power.
The party president had said that the party will scrap the NITI Ayog and bring the Planning Commission back. In a similar line, INC pledges a separate budget for Railways in addition to another one for the agricultural industry.
The flagship scheme NYAY, which assures Rs. 72,000 per year for India’s poorest “will help remonetise what Mr Modi had demonetized,” said Rahul.
The manifesto pledges to “simplify” GST, a promise Rahul had made several times.
The committee to develop the manifesto was constituted a year ago. “Nothing in this [manifesto] will be a lie,” Rahul asserted.
