West Bengal Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Monday released the party’s election manifesto ‘Banglar Disha’ for the upcoming assembly elections in the state.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury launched the manifesto at the party’s state headquarters in Kolkata. The Congress has eight distinct promises for the state, focusing on “long-term development” as opposed to “dole politics”, said Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

According to Great Grand Old Party, this model is in line with the vision of the late Bidhan Chandra Roy, the second CM of West Bengal, who played a key role in the state’s developmental history.

Chowdhury said today that Congress’ manifesto has distinct promises on law & order, education, health, as well as arts & culture. He urged citizens to vote for the Left-Congress-ISF coalition, the clear “alternative”, for a better future. Slamming both the TMC & the BJP, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said the parties failed to meet any of their stated targets despite promising voters on such issues for years.

Release of Congress’ poll manifesto comes a day after BJP unveiled its ‘Sankalp Patra for Sonar Bangla’. Bhartiya Janta Party’s manifesto was released by Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Kolkata on Sunday. Notably, the Left Front, the alliance partner of Congress for the West Bengal polls had released its manifesto on Saturday. Following this, there is a lot of speculation going on in the political arena as there has been no unified manifesto of the alliance.

The ruling TMC took the lead in launching its manifesto first.

Elections to the Two ninety four-member state Assembly will be held in 8 phases starting from 27th March with the final round of voting taking place on 29th April. The counting of votes will take place on 2nd May.
