Trinamool Congress on Wednesday released the party's manifesto ‘Didir Shopoth’ (didi’'s promises) for the 2024 General Election.

Taking to X, the TMC said, “With Didir Shopoth, we pledge to uplift every Indian with guaranteed employment, universal housing, free LPG cylinders, assured MSP for farmers, scholarships for SC, ST, OBC students and much more. Together, let's overthrow the BJP zamindars and pave the way for a dignified life for all.”

Releasing the manifesto at the party headquarters in Kolkata, TMC Rajya Sabha member Derek O'Brien said, “These are the promises we will fulfil as part of the INDIA bloc when it forms the next government.”

The party's manifesto also promises to bring a constitutional amendment to Article 155 to ensure that “governors are appointed in consultation with state legislatures.”
