Guwahati: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Saturday released the party’s manifesto for the upcoming assembly elections in Assam with five guarantees to the voters.
In the manifesto, Congress has promised to repeal the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which triggered massive protests across the country last year, including in Assam.
Congress also promised Rs 2,000 per month for every housewife in the state, five lakh government jobs and 200 units of free electricity.
The manifesto focused on “five guarantees” and promised to raise the minimum wages of tea garden workers to Rs 365.
“Though the Congress symbol is there in the document, actually it is the people’s manifesto. It contains the aspirations of the people of Assam,” Gandhi also said.
Assam is set to go to the assembly election from March 27. The voting will be held in three phases and the counting of votes will be held on May 2. The state is currently ruled by Bharatiya Janata Party which is in a direct fight with Congress.
Gandhi said that the entire Assam has been handed over to “outsiders.” He further claimed that the BJP is attacking Assam’s culture and said that Congress will “protect the state”.
