As part of the Congress manifesto for the state of Rajasthan, chief of the Congress party Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday announced seven promises for economic empowerment devoted to the advancement and prosperity of the state. The party chief declared at a rally in Anupgarh, Rajasthan, that the Congress is fully committed to Rajasthan’s development and prosperity. Kharge continued, “The social justice programmes of the Congress party and its seven promises of economic empowerment are eliminating inequality in Rajasthan and will make Rajasthan more prosperous.”
Kharge further mentioned that the Congress party’s guarantee manifesto for Rajasthan includes giving Rs 10,000 every year to the female head of the family under the Griha Lakshmi Yojana guarantee, procuring cow dung at Rs 2 kg under the Gowdhan guarantee and giving free laptops and tablets to first-year government college students.
The guarantee also included giving access to English-medium schools, giving gas cylinders at as low as Rs 500, and promising to return the old pension scheme for government employees.
The Congress government, which recently came to power in the southern state of Karnataka, had promised a series of guarantees to its voters in the run-up to the polls.
