Congress vows to pace up growth of Haryana
CHANDIGARH, SEPT 30--The Indian National Congress which has released its manifesto for the October 13, 2009 Haryana Vidhan Sabha elections, has vowed to pace up Haryana’s overall development and reiterated its commitment to providing accountable, transparent, fear-free, incorruptible and egalitarian governance.
The manifesto was released by Mr Prithviraj Chauhan, Union Minister, AICC General Secretary and in charge, Haryana affairs, in the presence of the Chief Minister, Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda, PCC chief, Mr Phool Chand Mullana, Dr Ram Prakash, Chairman, Manifesto Committee, Mr B K Hari Prasad, AICC General Secretary, and other party leaders at the Haryana Congress Bhavan here today.
Reiterating its commitment to welfare of the farming community, the Congress Party manifesto has promised to double the present two per cent rate of growth in agriculture, promote horticulture and incentivize diversification to increase the income of small and marginal farmers. It plans to evolve a new policy to free the farmers from yoke of debt. The party promises to monitor and increase the floor rate from time to time under the Land Acquisition Policy.
With a view to ensuring food security, the Congress promises all BPL families 25 kilogram of wheat and rice at Rs. 3 per kilo every month under the UPA Government policy. BPL families will also be provided pulses and edible oils at subsidised rates through ration shops.
It promises to give its rural and urban consumers 20-22 hours of power supply a day in the next five years. It also reiterates its commitment of eight-hour power supply to the farming sector for running tubewells. The party has pledged to make Haryana a power surplus State by 2012-2013 and ensure that the state starts getting power from one new power plant every year in the next five years.
The Congress has promised another loan waiver scheme. On the lines of Central loan waiver scheme, the State Co-operative Banks would launch a Loan and Interest Waiver Yojana for non-farmer loanees. Under the scheme, those who have taken loan of up to Rs. 10,000, their principal amount and interest would be waived off. In case of loanees who have taken loan of more than Rs. 10,000 their loan up to Rs. 10,000 and complete interest would be waived off on the condition that the loanee must have cleared the principal amount over and above Rs. 10,000.
Claiming that “we made promises, fulfilled them and even worked beyond promises” for the welfare of all sections of the society, the Congress Party manifesto said that the Congress Party alone combined in ample measure experience, youth power and capabilities of achieving targets. The manifesto pledged the party’s commitment to pace up Haryana’s all-round development to make it Number One state in the coming five years. The poor, backward, Scheduled Castes, farmers and the common man continue to form the bedrock of every Congress plan and programme. It firmly believes in working steadfastly for the maintenance of peace, security and good governance, which are the pre-requisites of development and progress, the manifesto affirmed.
The manifesto claimed that the secular, progressive and resurgent image of the country today was mainly because of the enlightened and visionary leadership of the Congrss President, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, and the able guidance of the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh.
The manifesto said that the Congress was seeking fresh mandate on the strength of the performance of its government which had been unprecedented and unparalleled in the history of this state since its inception in 1966. The party government implemented a slew of social welfare schemes, reaching out to one and all and qualitative and quantitative reforms have been made in the field of education and health. Medical services have not only been expanded and modernised but also taken to the doorsteps of the people.
The Congress, the manifesto claims, is the only political party which has been nurtured by leaders like Mahatama Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. The party is guided by a farsighted leader like Sonia Gandhi, the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, and draws inspiration from youth icon Rahul Gandhi. The 34-page detailed Congress manifesto promises to the highly enthused electorate of the state, a government that spells stability, equity, progress and all-round development, as the Congress believes that economic development, secularism and social justice are two sides of the same coin.
The Congress manifesto urges people to vote for Congress for economics progress, security, stability and bright future of their children. The Congress Party remains the only political party which has clear goals and a vision which can wipe out the last tear from the face of every Haryanvi, the manifesto says.
