"The Congress manifesto completely bears the imprint of the Muslim League, and little remaining part of it, is completely dominated by the leftists…Congress is not visible in this," PM Modi said. His statement came just ahead of the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

The Muslim League and Mohammed Ali Jinnah made the demand for the partition of British India into separate Hindu and Muslim states. After the formation of Pakistan in 1947, the League became Pakistan's dominant political party.

Congress manifesto released

The Congress released its 'Nyay Patra' or manifesto for the Lok Sabha Elections on April 5. The party promised minorities the freedom of choice of dress, food, language and personal laws if they come to power after winning the Lok Sabha Elections 2024. 

Among other promises were Right to apprenticeship, a legal guarantee for the Minimum Support Price (MSP), and passing a constitutional amendment to raise the 50 percent cap on reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs.

The grand old party also made numerous promises including job reservations for EWS, law for the LGBTQIA+ community, Mahalaxmi Scheme, nationwide caste census, among others in its poll manifesto.
