Congress Manifesto: Nationalism Versus Growth


Congress party has released its election manifesto with a farsighted focus on growth, development and employment. The manifesto is titled “Hum Nibhayenge” or “We will deliver”. “We have delivered the voice of the people,” Rahul Gandhi said after releasing the manifesto. “We have been hearing a large number of lies spoken everyday by our prime minister,” he said. “Nothing in the manifesto is a lie.”It has also stressed its promises on economically deprived sections of our country. It has also come up with the sketch of filling up 22 lakh government sector vacancies by 2020 March.

Party president Rahul Gandhi says he believes in keeping up the promises . Overall the offers and promises offered by the party is quiet enticing . The focus on rural distress and unemployment and the proposal of a separate farmers budget to address issues of rural distress is a real move in the right sector to woo the votes of the rural sector. The 55-page manifesto is largely divided into six sections, including promises on employment, economy, internal security, good governance, economically deprived sections and a life of dignity for all. The manifesto reflects the ‘mann ki baat’ of people of India.

The good news to small investors is that it would require no permission for the first three years; and emphasis the reiteration of already announced minimum income guarantee, or NYAY, and country-wide farm loan waiver.

If Congress can take this promising manifesto to the hearts of voters the party will have an edge over its main rival BJP in the coming 2019 elections.
