Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Days ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections, the Congress party on Monday moved the Election Commission (EC) against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for comparing the party manifesto with the Muslim League. 

Taking to X, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said that a party delegation met with the Election Commission and presented and argued as many as six complaints, including two against the Prime Minister. 

Complaint against PM Modi

He said the complaint has been filed against the Prime Minister's absurd claim that the Congress Nyay Patra is attempting to divide the country and imposing the pre-independence ideology of the Muslim League.

"This is the time for the Election Commission to demonstrate its independence by ensuring a level playing field for all parties. We live in hope that the Hon’ble Commission will uphold its Constitutional mandate. For our part, we will continue to pursue all avenues, political and legal, to expose this regime," Ramesh added. 

Congress party's manifesto 

The Congress party's election manifesto focuses on 'Paanch Nyay' or five pillars of justice, including 'Yuva Nyay', 'Naari Nyay', 'Kisaan Nyay', 'Shramik Nyay' and 'Hissedari Nyay' as well as the guarantees made by it to the people as part of its poll promises for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party in its manifesto also says that the party will conduct a nationwide Socio-Economic and Caste Census to enumerate the castes and sub-castes and their socio-economic conditions and it will pass a constitutional amendment to raise the 50 per cent cap on reservations for SC, ST and OBC. The Congress manifesto was compiled after carrying out nationwide consultations and after receiving thousands of suggestions via email and our 'Awaaz Bharat Ki' website, as per the party.
