Unlike Modi, We Don’t Tell Lies: Kharge

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday said that, unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his party does not make false promises.

The remarks came after Congress released its manifesto titled ‘Nyay Patra’ on Friday while the BJP had called it “bundle of false claims”.

Addressing a public rally in Jaipur, Mallikarjun Kharge said, “We have promised to fulfil 25 guarantees, if our party comes to power. Unlike PM Modi, we don’t tell lies. He has given several guarantees, but I want to ask you which guarantee has been fulfilled so far. He gave the guarantee to provide 2 crore jobs every year. So, in the last 10 years, he had to provide 20 crore jobs. I want to ask if you have got 20 crore jobs or not?”

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was also in the rally, alleged that the country’s big institutions that were formed to strengthen democracy have been weakened and today the situation is such that people do not have faith in the electronic voting machine.

She also targeted the Modi-led BJP government for the ever-increasing unemployment existing in the country and asked “what they had done to remove unemployment”.

She referred to the election manifesto of the party as the voice of the nation.”I am very happy and proud that after becoming a member of the Rajya Sabha, my mother Sonia Gandhi has come to your state (Rajasthan),” she said.

Earlier, on Friday, the Congress came out with its ‘Nyay Patra’ or manifesto for the seven-phased Lok Sabha elections, guaranteeing, among others, a minimum support price (MSP) to farmers on their produce as per the Swaminathan Commission report.

The Congress manifesto was compiled after carrying out nationwide consultations and receiving thousands of suggestions via email and on the portal ‘Awaaz Bharat Ki’, according to party sources.

The manifesto focuses on ‘Paanch Nyay’ or five pillars of justice, including ‘Yuva Nyay’, ‘Naari Nyay’, ‘Kisaan Nyay’, ‘Shramik Nyay’ and ‘Hissedari Nyay’ as well as the guarantees made by it to the people as part of its poll promises for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Rahul’s promise of a nationwide caste survey also features prominently in the list of poll pledges, with the party stating that it will conduct a nationwide socio-economic and caste census to enumerate the castes and sub-castes and their socio-economic conditions, if elected, and will bring an amendment to the Constitution to raise the 50 percent cap on reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs.

The Congress Working Committee (CWC) met in March and held extensive deliberations on the party’s manifesto.

The Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to be held across seven phases, starting April 19. The counting of votes is scheduled for June 4. (ANI)
