Delhi Congress promises justice for farmers in manifesto

Delhi Congress president Devender Yadav on Monday said his party’s Lok Sabha poll manifesto places special emphasis on the welfare and protection of farmers and their produce.

Addressing a ‘Delhi Dehat Mahapanchayat’ at Bawana village, he said the five ‘Nyay’ and 25 guarantees in the Congress manifesto include justice for farmers and improvement of the lives of people in rural Delhi.

These will be implemented when the Congress and the INDIA bloc come to power at the Centre, Yadav said.

According to a party statement, sarpanches from all rural areas were present in the Mahapanchayat. The common refrain at the Mahapanchayat was that farmers were looking for change and have decided to elect Congress and INDIA bloc candidates in the Lok Sabha elections, the report said.
