Shortly after the CWC meeting, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge posted on X: “…we had an indepth discussion on the Congress manifesto.

These guarantees have already been announced by Kharge and former Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

The CWC meeting comes after the completion of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra that culminated in Mumbai on Saturday, the day the Election Commission announced the schedule for the Lok Sabha polls.

According to the party sources, the Congress Central Election Committee (CEC) is also likely to meet in the evening to finalise the names of the remaining candidates for the seven-phase polls.
