Listing out the programmes of the Congress government in the State, Mr. Darshanapur and Mr. Patil said that five guarantees promised to the people of State will definitely change the lifestyle of the people and bring in economic stability among the common man.

“Shakti, Anna Bhagya and Gruha Jyothi schemes have already been implemented and Gruha Lakshmi and Yuva Nidhi schemes are going to be implemented soon,” they said.

These five guarantees will certainly help the poor. “The Congress has committed itself to implement the guarantees whatever the situation. We will keep the promises that we made to the people during the Assembly elections,” they said.
