Congress

The Congress on Wednesday released its manifesto for the Bihar assembly polls, promising 10 lakh government jobs, farm loan waiver and a monthly unemployment allowance of Rs 1,500 if voted to power.

The Congress-RJD combines poll pact with ultra-Left CPI(ML) in Bihar is deplorable and unfortunate as it can lead to a resurgence of naxalism in the state which has reeled under Maoist violence for long, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Wednesday.

Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister made a stir after his distasteful comment. Today, he explained that it was not intentionally done.

Priyanka Gandhi attacks on the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh over the Ballia shooting case, she questioned who is the state government standing with.

Rahul Gandhi hits out at Modi government saying it is busy “filling the pockets of its special friends” and that is why the country’s poor are hungry.

Stoutly defending the new farm laws of the Centre, she said these legislations came under the ambit of the union government and it covered inter-state farm trade.

An FIR has been registered Bhim Army chief Chandrashekar Azad and 400 others for violating Section 144 of CrPC and the Epidemic Diseases Act by visiting the village on Sunday.

While attacking the centre over the farm bills, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that his party will never back off from opposing these bills.
