Congress believes strong undercurrent in favour of the party in the country

New Delhi : Congress General Secretary incharge of the communications department, Jairam Ramesh today said that there was a strong undercurrent in support of the Congress party across the country.

Intensifying its campaign for the Lok Sabha elections the Congress on Monday released the song ‘Haath Badlega Haalat’ for the Lok Sabha election campaign.

Through this song, Ramesh said, the party will convey the message of 25 guarantees given under ‘Paanch Nyay’ in the party’s manifesto to the public across the country.

Addressing a press conference along with the party spokesperson and Chairperson of Social Media Supriya Shrinate, while releasing the campaign song of the party, ‘Haath Badlega Haalat’, Ramesh said he had visited the north-eastern parts of the country and had felt overwhelming support for the Congress party.

He observed that the people in the north-east, like the rest of the country, believe that Congress only can save and safeguard the diversity of India. He pointed out, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had completely ignored Manipur and had not bothered to go there even for campaigning.

Referring to the atmosphere being created in favour of Congress in the Lok Sabha elections, Ramesh said that he has just visited the north-eastern states, where the undercurrent of Congress is visible.

The biggest issue of the north-eastern states, he disclosed, is who can protect the diversity of the people there. The diversity in the north-eastern states on the basis of religion, caste, language and province is under threat today, he observed, while claiming that the people there have understood that the only option to remove BJP is Congress.

About the campaign song, the Congress general secretary said that the first phase of the Congress campaign was ‘Mere Vikas Ka Do Hisaab’. After this, he added, the Congress has started the ‘Haath Badlega Haalat’ campaign.

Besides, the Congress has already released its ‘Nyaya Patra’ (manifesto), in which Congress has announced ‘Paanch Nyay’ with 25 guarantees.

Jairam Ramesh pointed out, on April 3, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge started door-to-door distribution of guarantee cards from Delhi.

These guarantee cards will be delivered to eight crore families across the country, he said, adding, the Congress workers have already started distributing these guarantee cards door-to-door.

Supriya Shrinate said that Congress’ campaign is based on the five pillars of justice that Congress has promised. She said, these promises have been made after talking to the people, keeping in mind their dreams and expectations. Congress is talking about every issue on which Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cheated the people, she remarked.
