People are not foolish
The Congress manifesto for Lok Sabha polls 2019 is a bunch of impossible un implementable promises.
The Congress manifesto for Lok Sabha polls 2019 is a bunch of impossible un implementable promises. The NYAY is the biggest open fraud on the people as its implementation is simply next to impossible to put it into practice ,The manifesto exposed the hurry of the congress that at any cost it wants to gain some more seats as the party and the entire Indian public knows that the coming back to power at the centre by congress under the leadership political minnow Rahul is ruled out, hence it can promise anything and everything ,the party can happily promises to bring moon to every Indian voter's house.
Do they think that the people are that foolish to fall to the hallow promises of desperate congress? What they could not be able to do ruling the country for 60- long years wanted to do it if voted back to power. The current hurriedly cooked up manifesto well surely ' misses the wood for the tress'. I doubt whether the Congress president Rahul will ever come of out of political diapers.

Can GOP implement its promises?
The Grand Old Party (GOP) released its manifesto on Tuesday in which it has given top priority to the Nyutam Aay Yojana (NYAY) or minimum income guarantee which it's national president Rahul Gandhi announced in an election meeting. Apart from it the manifesto listed out some other promises like filling of 34 lakh jobs, providing 150 days employment under MGNREGA, separate budget to agriculture, revamped GST, passing the Women's Reservation Bill etc. Further it stated in the manifesto that it would work with the international community to isolate Pakistan to shun terror infrastructure. It also promised to revoke AFSP act in J&K.
During elections it is quite natural for the political parties to ensure even the moon but in reality they forget everything conveniently to pursue the interests of business people and industrialists. The Congress should implement its much touted NYAY scheme as central scheme by taking State government employees help only but it should not be a Centre and State sponsored scheme. While announcing the scheme the young leader repeatedly said that he would be giving ₹ 72000 crore to five crore poorest families every year whereas the present government robbed the public money nearly ₹32000 to help bigshots in Rafale deal.
Moreover the Congress would have given more seats to women instead of waiting for passing Women's Reservation Bill in present elections so that others might follow it .Even in J&K also it must think workable formula rather than creating hype about revoking AFSP act. Moreover, the promise of separate budget for agriculture would not give relief to farmers unless they are assured of timely institutional credit besides remunerative prices and permanent irrigation to their fields
