Bhopal/New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday made a rather lengthy list of around 1,000 promises to the voters of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh. Leader of the grand old party Kamal Nath dubbed the more-than-exhaustive manifesto as “Vachan Patra” or letter of promises.

While the 973-point long manifesto has not left out practically any realm and section of voters, the desperate attempt could be a panic reaction to chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan showing no signs of being bogged down by anti-incumbency.

According to Congress spokesperson Rajiv Tyagi, of the litany of promises made, 75 were central to the party’s agenda in the state.

Congress tried to make the most of the perceived public unease at the growing petrol and diesel prices. It also made a pitch to rally the farmers of the state by promising waiver of farm loans up to Rs 2 lakh each.

The party said corruption was a big problem in the state and would be attended to. The Congress promises to provide employment to the people, too.
