Kolkata, Mar 22: The Congress on Monday released its manifesto for West Bengal assembly polls, stressing that it wants to restore the glory that the state enjoyed in the 1950s and 60s under the then chief minister, Bidhan Chandra Roy, widely regarded as the architect of modern Bengal.
The Congress, which has forged an alliance with the Left Front and the newly formed Indian Secular Front (ISF) for the assembly elections, said in the document that it does not believe in “politics of freebies”, but would ensure wholesome development of West Bengal.
Maintaining that Bengal had progressed well during the tenure of BC Roy, who brought several heavy industries to the state, WBPCC president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said the party has highlighted eight issues that it wishes to address, if voted to power.
