The Congress will release its Goa election manifesto on January 23 at the hands of senior party leader and MP Jyotiraditya Scindia.

The election manifesto for Goa State Legislative Assembly polls would be released by our leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on January 23,” All India Congress Committee Secretary Girish Chodankar told PTI today.

The party which is contesting in 37 out of 40 assembly constituencies in Goa had began an exercise to get inputs from the people before drafting the manifesto, he said.

The manifesto committee was constituted after inviting suggestions from public in writing and also through social media. It is completely people centric,” he said.

Though details of the manifesto are kept under wraps, Chodankar hinted that issues like ban on Casinos, Special Status to Goa, Special commission for minority people and employment generation would figure in it.

The party had in October last year released a strongly-worded chargesheet against the BJP government charging it for the MoI (medium of instruction) mess, iron ore mining closure, failure to finalise the Regional Plan and shifting of off-shore casinos out of river Mandovi and creating unemployment.

Chodankar recalled that the chargesheet had nailed the Laxmikant Parsekar government on over 25 different counts.

  1. Congress manifesto may reflect the lapses of the present government as well as populist programmes. With the rise of SAP as a third force, the Congress manifesto might become crucial for appealing people to vote it to power. The impact of the manifesto depends upon its contents. The contest may be interesting with all the parties putting up a stiff fight.

    • Congress must first give 10 Lakhs rupees to each Goan family from the looted 36 Thousand Corers rupees and then decide to contest Goa Assembly Election. If not give then Congress will get Zero Seat.
