Congress’ soft-Hindutva agenda: Rajasthan manifesto talks about ‘gau shala’ and revival of Sanskrit language

Rajasthan, along with Telangana, goes to polls on 7th December. The results for the five state assembly elections will be declared on 11th December.

Congress released its manifesto [pdf] for the poll-bound Rajasthan on Thursday, which had soft-Hindutva undertones. Other than the promises of loan waiver to farmers other populist promises like unemployment allowance for educated unemployed, Congress manifesto also promises establishment of go-char (grazing) land development board. It also promises upgradation of the existing gau shala which “might have been ignored by the BJP government”.

The manifesto also promises a revival of Sanskrit language by encouraging the same in schools. Rajasthan Congress has also promised ‘Vedic Sanskar’ as well as establishment of education board for the same. Congress has also made quite a few promises to people belonging to minority religions. Among other perks, the madarsas to have more computers and internet connection.

Congress’ Rajasthan manifesto with the soft-Hindutva approach is in line with the manifesto the grand old party released in Madhya Pradesh. In its ‘vachan patra’ released for Madhya Pradesh earlier this month, Congress promised setting up of Gaushalas at all village panchayats. It also promises construction of Ram Path and a Narmada Parikrama route. Congress has also promised to promote Sanskrit.
