The Congress party has unveiled its manifesto for the upcoming assembly elections in Rajasthan, with a focus on welfare schemes for women and marginalized sections of society. One of the key promises made in the manifesto is the implementation of a caste survey if the party comes back to power.
The manifesto also includes plans for a new employment scheme that will create jobs at the panchayat level, as well as providing cooking gas cylinders at a subsidized rate of Rs 400 to beneficiaries of the Ujjwala scheme.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, while launching the manifesto, emphasized the need for a law to tackle the issue of paper leaks. He urged the people to support the Congress party and stated that the guarantees and schemes implemented during his tenure have had a significant impact and will be continued if the party forms the government again.
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot were also present at the manifesto launch event in Jaipur.
The Rajasthan assembly elections are scheduled to take place on November 25.
