As Punjab election is scheduled to take place on February 4, the Congress party released its election manifesto today.
The key features of the manifesto include crackdown on drugs and corruption, debt waiver, and new industrial policy in 90 days.
The 120-page manifesto was released by top economist and former Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh today in New Delhi. It was also released simultaneously in six key cities of Punjab by senior party leaders.
The party also promises to end VIP culture, bring sweeping economic reforms, and total transparency in governance, besides giving free houses to homeless and socially weaker sections of society.

“Punjab Congress manifesto promises to free the state and its people from the oligarchic shackles of the Badal government, marked by widespread corruption, lawlessness, mafia rule, and nepotism linked with the Badals,” Congress said in a statement.
Although Congress has started its aggressive election campaign in the state, strangely the party has not yet announced its chief ministerial (CM) candidate.
The election for the 117-member Punjab Legislative Assembly will be held on February 4, 2017.
