Congress on MAR 26 2014, released its manifesto for the 2014 Lok Sabha Polls, focusing on inclusive growth of the Indian economy with promises to ensure Right to Health, Pension and Housing, bringing two thirds of country’s population into the middle class and restoring India’s economic growth to above 8 per cent within three years.

The manifesto, released by Congress president Sonia Gandhi, party vice- president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at a function in New Delhi, also promised to provide economic security for all low income families, focusing on fiscal consolidation, price stability and growth and ensure investment of nearly one trillion dollars in the infrastructure sector in the next one decade.

Gandhi, who had held interactions with a cross- section of people including women, youth, minorities, porters, farmers and fishermen, in order to incorporate their views in the party manifesto, said the manifesto reflects views and opinions of common people, who the party consulted before building it up.
