Kurukshetra, March 29: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday described the Nyunatam Aay Yojana’ (Nyay) scheme a surgical strike against poverty.

Speaking about the Congress party manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Gandhi said it will reflect people’s voice, not one man’s view, in an apparent reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Congress’ soon-to-be released manifesto will lay major thrust on jobs creation, addressing agrarian distress and strengthening the education and health sectors apart from charting a roadmap to boost economic growth, stated the party president.

The 48-year-old leader said the Congress-led UPA is storming back to power as people have rejected Modi’s politics of “false promises”.

“We want India’s voice and aspirations to prosper. We don’t believe in one man’s voice. We believe in everyone’s voice and choices. It requires tremendous discipline and hard work to do, but it works,” he said.

The Congress leader explained the minimum income guarantee saying its for those who earn less Rs 72,000 per year.

“PM Modi promised Rs 15 lakh to the poor. I’m not going to lie, giving Rs. 15 lakh is not possible. However, the Congress has come up with the NYAY scheme for those who earn less Rs 72,000 per year. We promise to give money to those who earn less than Rs 12,000 per month”.
