The Congress released its manifesto for the Assembly elections in Rajasthan on Thursday. Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and chairman of the manifesto committee Harish Choudhary released the party manifesto, which promises jobs to youth, free education to women, right to health, among others.

The highlight of the manifesto, however, is the waiver of farm loans if voted to power, an announcement the party president had made during an election meeting in Jaisalmer's Pokhran Assembly constituency on Monday. He said the Congress intends to give Rs 3,500 monthly allowance to unemployed youths in the state.

Pilot said that the manifesto was prepared after taking into consideration several opinions and as many as 2 lakh suggestions on multiple platforms such as social media. The manifesto also promises to bring Journalist Protection Act. The party has promised to form an implementation committee for time-bound implementation of the manifesto.
