The Congress party has officially unveiled its manifesto for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. This comprehensive 106-page document, known as the ‘Vachan Patra,’ outlines a series of promises and initiatives that cover various aspects of governance, with a particular emphasis on addressing the needs of different sections of society. The manifesto was presented to the public by MP Congress President Kamal Nath and the Chairman of the Promissory Note Committee, Rajendra Kumar, at Bhopal’s Ravindra Bhavan.

Among the notable highlights of the manifesto, the Congress party has pledged to conduct a caste census and establish an IPL team representing the state, showcasing its commitment to promoting both social equity and sports culture.

The manifesto contains an array of commitments aimed at benefiting different segments of the population, such as the youth, farmers, government employees, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Backward Classes. One of the key focal points is the reduction of farming costs to alleviate the burdens on farmers.

In line with the approach taken by the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Congress has promised to offer relief to the common electricity consumers. If the Congress secures governance in the state, it will waive the electricity bills for those consuming up to 100 units and halve the bills for those using up to 200 units.

The party has also committed to supporting agriculture by purchasing paddy from farmers at a rate of Rs 2,500 per quintal and wheat at Rs 2,600 per quintal. The long-term objective is to increase these rates to Rs 3,000 per quintal, thus bolstering the agricultural sector.

Under the Nandini Go Dhan Yojana, the Congress will purchase cow dung from farmers. Additionally, the party plans to generate employment opportunities by creating one lakh new positions in rural areas, fostering economic growth.

The Congress aims to empower the youth through the Swabhiman Yojana, which provides financial aid ranging from Rs 1,500 to Rs 3,000 to unemployed young people in the state. Furthermore, the party is keen on enacting legislation that guarantees the right to health, which includes health insurance coverage of up to Rs 25 lakh and accident insurance of up to Rs 10 lakh.

The manifesto also includes a daughter marriage scheme that provides Rs 1,01,000 to eligible beneficiaries. Moreover, the social security pension will see an increase to Rs 1,200, providing greater financial stability to those in need.

In summary, the Congress party’s manifesto for the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections encompasses a broad spectrum of promises and initiatives aimed at improving the lives of the people in the state. It reflects their commitment to addressing social and economic challenges while promoting inclusivity and growth.
