Unlike BJP, Congress keeps its election promises, says Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on

On Wednesday we visited the famous Kamakhya temple in Guwahati and offered a puja.

Speaking to reporters at the temple, Gandhi said that unlike the BJP, his party kept promises made to the people in the elections.

Responding to a question about what his party will do if it wins the state election, Gandhi said: “We have promised five guarantees.”

When asked how Congress would fulfill the “five guarantees,” Gandhi replied, “Do you know what the guarantee means? We are not like the BJP, we deliver what we promise.”

The congressman said that in Punjab, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka, his party had promised to forgo agricultural loans and did so after taking power.

“In Assam, we have guaranteed to increase the daily wage of tea garden workers to Rs 365,” he said, referring to one of the five pledges.

Gandhi offered prayers to Shaktipeeth atop Nilachal Hill before heading to election rallies in Chaygaon and Barkhetri, which will go to the polls in the final phase on April 6.

Gandhi was unable to attend his scheduled rallies in Silchar, Haflong and Bokajan on Tuesday due to heavy rains and bad weather there.

Instead, he posted his message on Twitter, claiming that his party will fulfill all of its “five guarantees” when it forms state government.

Congress pledged in its “guarantees” that it would not allow the implementation of the controversial citizenship law (CAA) in Assam, provide jobs for five young lakhs, provide 200 units of free electricity per month to all households, would provide monthly assistance. of Rs 2,000 to each housewife, in addition to increasing the minimum daily wage for tea garden workers.

Elections in 39 constituencies will take place on Thursday in the second phase and 40 seats in the final phase on April 6.

An estimated 79.97% of the total 81.09 lakh voters cast their vote in 47 constituencies during the first round of voting in Assam on March 27.
