Without declaring CM face, Punjab Congress to release manifesto

Chinnam Gandhi

The Punjab Congress has decided to release the party’s manifesto for upcoming Punjab polls without finalising the CM face of the party for the elections.

As per the information, the chairperson of Punjab Congress manifesto committee, Rajinder Kaur Bhattal announced that the party will be released on October 2 on Gandhi Jayanti or on November 14. She said that Nehru Jayanti is fixed as a deadline to release the manifesto.

Though the party has finalised the dates for releasing the manifestos but still the party has not made any official announcement for the CM face of the party in assembly elections. It seems the party will announce the chief ministerial candidate after releasing the manifesto and still the party failed to select the right candidate for CM face.

Even the party has played a stunt to choose the two dates for releasing the manifesto to grab the headlines in the media. The party has been identifying the stunts to woo the voters of the state by claiming that the party’s manifesto would be full of pro-people schemes.

It seems something is fishy in Punjab Congress as the party high command has not taken the matter of deciding CM face seriously and only a few months are left for the assembly elections.

The AICC has already announced the CM candidate for Uttar Pradesh assembly polls and the UP elections are scheduled after the Punjab assembly polls. Why has the party been delaying for the selection of a chief ministerial candidate for Punjab polls?

Perhaps, the party has been going through the process of shortlisting the names and the final announcement will be made just prior to the polls so that the party leaders or the workers could not show their resentment and they could concentrate on the polls.
