Cong manifesto to expose BJP, AAP

Aims to bring rivals' hollow promises to fore before city polls

The Delhi Congress plans to woo voters in the next Assembly elections by exposing the hollow promises made by the BJP and Aam Aadmi Party in the last few electoral outings in the city.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee President Arvinder Singh said on Saturday the exercise for preparing a party manifesto has begun and the final document will highlight the betrayal of public trust by the rival parties.

In the meetings of its manifesto and publicity committees held in the Delhi unit office to intensify the party’s preparations for Delhi Assembly elections, it was decided to take expert opinion from various sectors to offer people sops which are practical and achievable.

The party has also decided to hold a workshop next week in which all the ex-MPs, ex-MLAs, municipal councillors and civic election contestants, party delegates and former district presidents will participate.

“Their opinion would be taken into consideration and discussed for inclusion in the election manifesto and the functioning of the publicity committee,” Arvinder Singh said.

“Before giving a final shape to the election manifesto, the suggestions and opinions of those who work in various sectors of the society, the common people and social organisations, would be taken into considerations,” he said.

The meetings of the manifesto committee, headed by former Delhi minister A K Walia and publicity committee, headed by Haroon Yusuf, lasted around two hours each.
The members of the committees were told to give their suggestions and opinions in writing.

“The party’s manifesto would not be a document making hollow promises to the people, but would be the one with a clear vision in which only those issues would be included which could be taken up and tackled effectively,” said Mukesh Sharma, DPCC chief spokesperson.
