Congress Manifesto Out- Promises 5 Nyays and 25 Guarantees

Deepender Hooda, a Member of Parliament from the Congress party, mentioned that the party's manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024 is almost ready. He assured that the manifesto would include the five "nyay" principles, which were announced during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra (Connect India Justice March). These principles encompass twenty-five guarantees aimed at addressing various issues in society.

After a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), Hooda also took a dig at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), stating that people are tired of the BJP's governance and that the Congress party aims to work for the development of all sections of society.

The manifesto committee had previously submitted a draft document to the CWC for review.

The Congress party's electoral campaign revolves around the theme of "five nyay" principles, each containing five guarantees. These principles were articulated by Congress President Kharge and Rahul Gandhi. Here's a breakdown of the guarantees under each principle:

- 'Bhagidari Nyay' focuses on promoting partnership and inclusivity in governance.

- 'Kisan Nyay' aims to address issues faced by farmers and ensure their welfare.

- 'Nari Nyay' is dedicated to empowering women and enhancing their socio-economic status.

- 'Shramik Nyay' is about safeguarding the rights and interests of workers and laborers.

- 'Yuva Nyay' aims to provide opportunities and support for the youth of the country.

For instance, 'Yuva Nyay' promises to create three million government job opportunities, offer one-year apprenticeships for eligible degree holders, and provide social security to workers and farmers.

Similarly, 'Shramik Nyay' guarantees include addressing labor rights, reviewing labor codes, and enhancing tribal forest rights.

'Nari Nyay' proposes a 50 per cent reservation for women in government jobs, increased compensation, better education facilities, and the creation of hostels for working women.

The Congress Party has announced 82 candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, which will be held in seven phases starting from April 19. Vote counting is scheduled for June 4.
