New Delhi: Congress has almost finalized the party’s manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In this manifesto, she can make many big promises like bringing a scheme related to training the youth to deal with unemployment and ending the ‘Agneepath’ scheme. The manifesto committee headed by former finance minister P Chidambaram has held long consultations on election issues. The party’s manifesto committee includes senior leaders like Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Shashi Tharoor, Jairam Ramesh and Anand Sharma. Key members of the committee met at the party headquarters on Tuesday afternoon and finalized the document. A committee meeting was held here on Monday also.

Emphasis on empowering youth, women, poor and farmers

“The committee will hold the last round of talks before finalizing the party manifesto and make its final recommendations,” a source said ahead of the meeting. This 50-page document will be presented to the top leadership of the party and then to the Congress Working Committee for final approval. Sources said the party’s manifesto will focus on empowering the youth, women, the poor and farmers. He said the party is considering a plan to deal with the menace of paper leaks and is likely to present its vision to bring transparency in government recruitments.

Training and honorarium to youth on the lines of foreign countries

After raising the issues of unemployment and inflation extensively before the elections, Congress may announce a scheme for the youth on the lines of some developed countries like Germany. Under this scheme, youth are given training as well as a fixed honorarium. The manifesto is likely to focus on 5-Nyaya (five pillars of justice), which the Congress had promised during the ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ led by party leader Rahul Gandhi.

Legal guarantee to MSP

The Congress party will also focus on giving a legal guarantee to the minimum support price and promising a caste-based census in the country to fill government vacancies. Congress may emphasize on some welfare measures such as providing financial assistance to the marginalized sections of the society and ensuring that they get justice and become part of the state welfare measures. Sources say that Congress may also promise to end the new army recruitment scheme ‘Agneepath’ and restore the old recruitment process. (input language)
