Koraput: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said his party will provide free education to every girl in Odisha if voted to power in the forthcoming elections.
Addressing a public meeting in Koraput district, Rahul said his party will provide Rs 2,000 widow allowance and financial assistance for marriage of every poor woman.
Interacting with women at a convention on International Women’s Day, Rahul expressed concern over rising violence against women and said his party maintains zero tolerance for atrocities on women.
“Odisha is the poorest state despite abundance of resources as everything is being looted. If Congress comes to power, it will waive off farm loans, provide marriage kit to women, and hike allowance for widows to Rs 2000/,” the Congress chief said.
Rahul also assured that Congress will appoint special officers in every panchayat and set up financial corporation for women entrepreneurs.
Like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, agricultural loans of #Odisha farmers will be waived off if Congress is voted to power in the State said Rahul Gandhi in Jeypore.
HAL is manufacturing fighter planes for many years. #Odisha has a role to play in country’s security. Modi talks about nation’s security but has given Rs 30,000 crore to Ambani who doesn’t even have any experience in fighter plane manufacturing said Rahul Gandhi.
