The Congress will introduce basic rights and welfare package for all working people. Our priority will be to bring India back to 8% inclusive growth path. There will be zero aversion to foreign investment. We will bring "Direct tax Code" and "Goods and Services Tax" Bills, which will increase aggregate revenue. Our detailed "Jobs Agenda" will ensure 10 crore new jobs
Now next comes the labor class
We will ensure health insurance and pension cover for the entire labour class. There will be special focus on labour working in hazardous industries. All migrant labourers will be covered under the Aadhaar programme within one year. The Unorganised Workers' Social Security Act, 2008 will be implemented in letter and spirit.
Next comes some shameless promise about health.
The Congress will bring Right to Health and ensure everybody has access to quality healthcare. Health expenditure will be increased to 3% of GDP. Functional toilets will be ensured for every school and household. We will introduce a three-year diploma course in public health. By 2020, our target is to create 6o lakh new jobs in the health sector.
Next comes some 'Lets divide the nation' ideology. Yes the SC/ST and everything in between.
We will ensure the passage of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2013 provide 1,000 annual overseas scholarships and Skill Development Vouchers of Rs. 10,000 to unemployed graduates. We aim to establish a Special Commission to identify communities that have not benefited from reservations.
Next, comes the favorite topic of Rahul Gandhi. No, not the RTI but the Women empowerment. No wonder for Congress, women and their empowerment is paramount and they are more than doing their bit to achieve this pious goal.
Our top priority will be the Women's Reservation Bill and strict implementation of the Child Labour and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act's."One Stop Crisis Centres" for women will be set up in all hospitals. We will ensure all police stations have at least 25% women staffers. We will pass a Citizens' Charter for Women's Safety.
Ahh, the favorite sons of the seculars, the minorities come next.
We will endeavour to pass the Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill. Like the Maulana Azad Educational Fund, a corpus will be created to promote entrepreneurship and skill development of minorities. We will enhance our focus on providing reservations for minorities in educational institutes and government jobs
Next comes the youth.
Our aim is to give India the best education system in the world. We will transform "Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan" to "Shreshth Shiksha Abhiyan," provide state-of-the-art sporting facilities across India and establish a National Sports Education University. Youths from J&K, NE and LWE affected areas will receive special attention. A state-run employment exchange will be opened for those seeking employment abroad.
Rahul Gandhi is himself a youth so it is only imminent that he would pour his heart out for all his dear subordinates. But here I want to ask why? No not for the eternal love of youthful RG for all other youths but for the reason why I see special mention of J&K, NE and all. Are those youths anything different from an average youth of Maharashtra, Odisha or Tamilnadu? Or is it yet again an attempt at even dividing the youth of the nation in the middle? I know a divided society is a blessing for Congress but I was hoping they would at least spare the youths of the nation from their dirty dreadfulness. And regarding state-of-the-art (I don’t know what that means) sports facilities, they already have masterstrokes like Suresh Kalmadi to take care of that. And the shamelessness par excellence is when they talk about the best education system in the whole world or may be beyond. The guttersnipes don’t realize that after their 60 years misrule, there are at least 40% among us who don’t know how a school looks like, much less the best school in the world. But these selfsame idiots claim to erase any such shameful precedence if they are brought to power again. Not sure from where the clowns are planning to pull another rabbit here.
Can the farmers be left too far behind? So they come next
The Congress will provide its wholehearted support to farmers and continue to nurture the PPP for greater agricultural productivity and exports. Coverage of crop insurance schemes will be increased. We will establish a Ministry of Fisheries to help families dependent on fishing. Concessional loans, up to Rs. 5 lakh, will be provided to collectives of small, marginal and women farmers
I just want to do a ROFL act right now. Isn’t it the same party which is in power in Maharashtra where the farmer suicide has become so chronic that virtually no farmers left in the state for the count? To top it, isn’t their ally and another of a repugnant character called Ajit Pawar who openly made mockery of farmer’s plight when he asked if he should go and pee around their fields to supplement the shortage of water. Is it the same party which is now turning so vocal for the same farmer’s plight? And by the way, there is no policy framework to improve the situation of the farmers but just hot air. How many of you know who is the minister of fisheries and when we last heard that person doing something relevance? But ask RG, he has this notorious manifesto readily available to throw at your face and explain how the very ministry would come as a savior once he becomes the PM. And hey, is that loan weaver gimmick turned futile that now doles of 5 lakhs is getting rolled out with potential middlemen, politicians, babus and touts already salivating profusely to loot through in between.
Now there are some uneventful points after this, which never were of importance for the Congress party and it is evident from their previous behavior. Elaborating how nauseatic those points are wouldn’t do any justice to this blog.
So let’s jump to the next big point which matters every one of us, including the great Rahul Gandhi himself. Yes the corruption.
"The Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill" will give more teeth to state-agencies fighting corruption. The "Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials and Officials of Public International Organizations Bill, 2011" will bring foreign organizations under its ambit. The "Public Procurement Bill, 2012" will regulate all public procurements by the Central government.
I don’t have to explain much here since Congress is already in the path of some big scale self-defiance in this regard. The dutiful love shown in giving tickets to the likes of tainted masterpieces like Ashok Chavan and AK Bansal makes it clear where the priorities of this grossly corrupt party lies. Rest all are pretty much a hogwash. In the name of fighting corruption, these clowns have few sundry acts to lay out in front of us. How I wish such acts can prevent the selfsame like Kalmadi, Raja, Rani and etcetera from digging their hands in and looting with full force. Talking about the teeth; no teeth can bite the asses of the corrupt when the government itself becomes an accomplice in the crime. Had the teeth bestowed with enough power then the certified corrupts of the Congress party would have been roaming around bottom less by now. But what we see is entirely a different saga. The very corrupts are not only hailed but cajoled to come back to power and keep on looting further. I repeat – if only acts were sufficient then by now Sonia Gandhi would have won at least 6-7 Nobel prizes in different categories, just like that.
Before we conclude, the last interesting point is the promise of this notorious party on internal security.
Left Wing Extremism will be dealt with a firm hand. We will strengthen our security forces deployed in LWE affected areas by augmenting equipment, infrastructure and manpower, while also pursuing a development agenda to empower locals.
