Congress team visits Jagatsinghpur to seek opinion for People’s Manifesto

Jagatsinghpur: The Odisha Congress’ Manifesto Committee today visited Jagatsinghpur to interact with the people and seek their opinion for preparation of poll manifesto for the upcoming 2019 elections.

Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Niranjan Patnaik along with Chhattisgarh Cabinet Minister TS Singh Deo, local MLA Chiranjib Biswal and other party leaders went door-to-door, met common people and sought their suggestions on how the Congress can help them.

As per reports, the team interacted with the weavers, women SHGs, students, minorities, auto drivers, Asha Workers, tribals, lawyers, doctors, nurses and farmers for shaping the People’s Manifesto.

The manifesto team reached out to the lawyers of Jagatsinghpur District Bar Association where Patnaik and Deo interacted with the lawyers and assured them of an immediate solution.

The team then interacted with college students to understand their problems and took their valuable suggestions to improve the quality of higher education in Odisha.

Like Chhattisgarh Congress, the Odisha Congress party will visit various districts and meet people from all walks of life including students, intellectuals, Self Help Groups and other sections of the society ahead of preparing the party’s poll manifesto.

“We have an experience of 45 years and can make the poll manifesto by sitting in closed doors but we want people to come up with suggestions which would help in preparing the poll manifesto. Therefore, I request all to take part in it,” stated Singh Deo.

It was also observed that after the win in the assembly elections in the Hindi-heartlands- Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, the Congress party is using the same formula here in Odisha and trying to woo the voters by promising loan waiver and hike in paddy Minimum Support Price (MSP).

“My Government was able to waive farm loan and provide MSP of Rs 2,500 to farmers. The same will be the case in Odisha,” said Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel during his visit to Nuapada district on Sunday.
