The Rajasthan Congress has released the party manifesto, promising to waive the loan of farmers and provide free education to women and jobs to youth.

Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and chairman of the manifesto committee Harish Choudhary released the party manifesto.

Mr. Pilot said the Congress party will waive the loans of farmers if voted to power, an announcement the party president Rahul Gandhi had made during an election meeting in Jaisalmer’s Pokhran Assembly constituency on Monday.

He said the Congress intends to give ₹3,500 monthly allowance to unemployed youths in the State.

The party has also promised to bring a legislation for the protection of journalists in the state. The party has promised to form an implementation committee for time-bound implementation of the manifesto.

The Assembly elections are scheduled for December 7.
