Trinamool Congress releases manifesto for general electionsMarch 23rd, 2009 - 9:55 pm ICT by ANI
Kolkata, Mar 23 (ANI): Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Monday released her partys manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
The party aimed at forming a secular, progressive and stable government at the centre which would focus on economic reforms, industry, agricultural development and adopt pro-people policies, the election manifesto said.
Banerjee appealed to people to vote for her party to defeat the ruling Left government.
I appeal to all people of West Bengal to vote for the Trinamool Congress-Congress alliance as it is the only alternative in the state against the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)-led Left Front government, she said.
The Trinamool Congress leader also said that her party wanted a non-BJP and non-communist government.
We want a stable government and thus we are neither with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nor with the newly formed Third Front led by the communists, she added.
Meanwhile, Tata Motors launched its much-awaited car, Nano.
When asked about the launching of the worlds cheapest car, Banerjee dismissed the glittering launch of the Nano, saying that was not her business. (ANI)
