Hon'ble Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi addresses Kisan Rally in Naya Raipur, Chhattisgarh
ALL INDIA CONGRESS COMMITTEE
24, AKBAR ROAD, NEW DELHI
Shri Rahul Gandhi announces “Minimum Income” for every poor family in India
28 January, 2018
(Translation in English)
We have taken a decision that in the year 2019, the Congress Government at the Centre will guarantee “Minimum Income” to every individual in the country. That means, the Government of India will ensure that a minimum amount of income is credited to the account of every poor person in the country. This way no one will remain hungry or poor in any part of the country, and we shall do this not only in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh or Rajasthan, but in every other state of the country. We do not want two Indias in this country. There will be only one India and the Congress Government will ensure a minimum income to every poor person in the country. This will be an unprecedented step, which has not been ever taken in any other country of the world and we are going to do it in India after the Congress Government comes to power at the centre in 2019.
