LS Polls 2024: Congress manifesto launch | Priyanka Gandhi, Kharge slam BJP, Modi | Oneindia News

Top Congress leaders, including the party president Mallikarjun Kharge, former president Sonia Gandhi, held a rally in Jaipur on Saturday, April 6, to publicly launch its election manifesto 'Nyay Patra'. The Jaipur public rally comes a day after the Congress released its manifesto for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls promising a legal guarantee for MSP, and passing a constitutional amendment to raise the 50 per cent cap on reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs among others. The release of the manifesto 'Nyay Patra' was announced by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, expressing happiness and pride in her mother Sonia Gandhi's presence in Rajasthan after becoming a member of the Rajya Sabha. Unemployment, claimed to be at its peak, was criticised, with allegations made against the BJP and Modi government for failing to address the issue adequately. The Agniveer scheme, accused of shattering people's hopes, was mentioned, along with concerns raised about leaked papers in various states and the ongoing protests by farmers, suggesting that PM Modi is unwilling to heed their grievances.

Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay of the Calcutta High Court announced his resignation today, accompanied by his declaration of joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Speaking at a press conference held in Kolkata at 2:25 pm, Gangopadhyay emphasised that he sees the BJP as the sole national party capable of challenging the dominance of the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal. He clarified his decision by stating his reluctance to align with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) due to his religious beliefs and his aversion to joining the Congress, citing its dynastic nature, which sidelines accomplished leaders like Jairam Ramesh. #JusticeGangopadhyay #CalcuttaHighCourt #Resignation #BJP #JoiningPolitics #PoliticalTransition #JudicialResignation #PoliticalShift #BJPEntry #IndianPolitics #BengalPolitics #LegalNews #JudicialAffairs #BJPPolitics #JudicialResignation #JudicialCareer #PoliticalMove #BJPMembership #LegalTransition #JudicialDeparture ~PR.152~ED.101~
