Congress will form the government in 2019 and implement all welfare schemes to uplift socio-economic condition of the people, said Punjab Congress chief and Gurdaspur member of parliament Sunil Jakhar.

He was speaking at the Congress Bhawan on the occasion of induction ceremony of Punjab Unit of Unorganised Workers’ Congress new chairman Mohan Singh on Sunday. Unit’s national chairman Arvind Singh and Punjab in-charge Mehboob Bhatt were also present on the occasion.

Recalling several schemes initiated by the previous Congress government, Sunil Jakhar said, “MGNREGA has been the most important welfare scheme for people, where 100 days employment was guaranteed to the person. Congress also launched other welfare initiatives in all sectors — education, health, and social security for poor. But in 2014, Modi government came to power by making false promises and did not properly work for the welfare of poor and started favouring rich and industrialists.”
