Priyanka Gandhi Vadra released the Congress manifesto for the UP Assembly polls on Wednesday. She said that the party will waive off farmers’ debt within 10 days of coming to power in Uttar Pradesh.
Congress will halve electricity bills in the state and families financially affected by COVID-19 will be given Rs 25,000.
The manifesto also promises free treatment of up to Rs 10 lakh for any disease, Priyanka said.
The party will also provide smartphones to girl students in Class 10 and 12, as well as electric scooters to college-going females.
The manifesto ‘Unnati Vidhan’ comes after two other manifestos — ‘Mahila Vidhan’ for women and ‘Bharti Vidhan’ for youth.
For the youth, Congress has promised 2 million jobs, including the 1.2 million vacancies in the government jobs. Women will get 40 percent reservation in jobs.
Priyanka said that the MSP for wheat and paddy would be Rs 2,500 and Rs 400 for the cane.
Slum dwellers will be made owners of the land on which they are living and economical housing will be started for the middle class, she said.
