Lok Sabha elections-2024: What Jairam Ramesh and Kharge said as CWC deliberates manifesto

New Delhi: The Indian National Congress said on Tuesday that it is fully prepared for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections-2024 and will soon come with the manifesto, which will not just be a manifesto but the party's 'Nyay Patra' that will fulfill the five guarantees promised to the country.

Addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters here on Tuesday, party general secretary KC Venugopal, accompanied by party general secretary Jairam Ramesh, said, "The Congress Working Committee had a detailed discussion on the manifesto for the upcoming 2024 general elections. The CWC has authorized Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge to grant final approval for the manifesto. A date for its final release would be made soon."

CWC meeting is not just for the manifesto but for our Nyay Patra

Jairam Ramesh said that during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Rahul Gandhi met and spoke to several people from different sections of society. During the course of the yatra, Rahul Gandhi spoke of the guarantees and commitments under the five pillars of the yatra: Kisan Nyay, Yuva Nyay, Naari Nyay, Shramik Nyay, and Hissedari Nyay. These five pillars will have five guarantees.

Ramesh said, "the CWC meeting held today is not just for the manifesto but for our Nyay Patra."

Ramesh further added that the Congress party is ready to liberate the country from the injustice of the last 10 years of BJP rule.

"Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi ji have announced 25 guarantees with regards to the five justices in the last few days," Ramesh said.

Country has been fervently demanding a change: Kharge

Earlier in the day, the CWC extensively discussed the party manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections that was chaired by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge. The meeting was attended by Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, former party president Rahul Gandhi, and members of the CWC.

In his inaugural speech, Kharge said, "the country has been fervently demanding a change. The guarantees currently being touted by the present government would have the same fate as that of the 'India Shining' slogan of 2004".

He urged the party leaders to ensure that the manifesto gets the widest publicity in different states and that the party's commitment is taken to every household across the country and to the people at large.
