NEW DELHI, January 21:
The Congress released a youth manifesto on Friday ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, with Rahul Gandhi saying the party wants to build a “new UP” driven by the power of youth.
In the manifesto, the party decided to fill the “huge backlog” of jobs in the public sector and promised 20 lakh jobs of which eight lakh would be for women.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who together with Rahul Gandhi published the ‘Bharti Vidhan’ at the party headquarters here, said the party wanted the focus to be on development as the propaganda circulating mostly is negative or caste-based or communitarianism.
When asked if her party would be willing to align itself with other opposition parties if the need arose after the elections in order to implement the vision unveiled by the party, Priyanka Gandhi said told reporters: “If such circumstances arise and in the event that they do occur, we are open to considering this. I would say that if such a situation arises, we would definitely want our youth and women’s program filled if we were to be part of such a waiver. »
To another question about the main ministerial face of the party and what would be the strategy of the party to make it in the polls, the general secretary of the party said: “Do you see another face in UP on the side of Congress? Then?”
When pressed, she said, “Can’t you see my visible face everywhere?”
In his remarks at the press conference to launch the ‘youth manifesto’, Rahul Gandhi said the vision document is ‘not empty rhetoric’ but drafted after consulting young people whose views are in it reflected.
“There are polls in UP and the young people there need a new vision and only Congress can give that vision to the state,” the former president said.
“We don’t spread hatred, we work to unite people and we want to build a new Uttar Pradesh driven by the strength and confidence of youth.”
Priyanka Gandhi added that the biggest problem in the state is recruitment and young people are disappointed.
The party goes to the polls with a focus on youth and women and has announced that it will reserve 40% of tickets for women in Uttar Pradesh.
Polling for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly, which has 403 members, is scheduled to take place in seven phases from February 10 to March 7 with the counting of votes taking place on March 10. (PTI)
