A research into Congress manifestos of 2004 and 2009 reveals that there were many promises that were made by the party. However, many of the major promises remained unfulfilled despite the party having been in power for ten years. In fact, there are promises which have been repeated through two manifestos in 2004 and 2009, but were never fulfilled.
Interestingly, some of their major promises which had constituted as burning issues of the day and which had required strong political will, have been finally delivered by PM Modi. Here are some of those undelivered promises of Congress.
Direct Income Support to Farmers
Provision of Electricity to Each Household
Fulfilling the Demand of One Rank One Pension
Implementation of GST
Connecting All Villages to a Broadband Network
Ensuring Highest Level of Defence Preparedness
Maintaining High Growth with Fiscal Prudence and Low Inflation
