manifesto today Facing tough Lok Sabha elections Congress is expected to fall back on its left-of-centre policies focusing on welfare measures and widening the ambit of rights-based legislations to include healthcare and employment in the party’s manifesto to be released on Wednesday Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party Vice President Rahul PTI The crux of the document to be released by party President Sonia Gandhi in the presence of a galaxy of leaders including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi who will also express a firm resolve to tackle corruption an issue that has haunted UPA-II in the form of scams like 2G coal and CWG Uplift of 70 crore people falling between middle class and below poverty line a promise to empower women and increase their representation in politics and strong affirmative action in the private sector could be the other highlights Given the fact that government jobs are drying up in the post liberalisation period the party’s poll document could lay special emphasis on job creation Battling allegations of corruption and an aggressive opposition campaign on the issue the manifesto is likely to announce specific measures to check the menace as well as to bring back black money stashed abroad While the manifesto may lay emphasis in favour of high growth the party will be insisting that benefits of a rising economy reach the last man The party’s poll document will also factor in the issue of price rise and more particularly of the food basket and could advocate stringent measures to check blackmarketing and hoarding besides amending some rules in market regulation Before Amethi there was Phulpur It is located in the Allahabad district of Uttar Pradesh and is known for being the Lok Sabha seat from which Jawaharlal Nehru got elected to the Indian Parliament To put it simply Phulpur gave India its first Prime Minister Reuters Nehru won the polls hands down in 1952 1957 and 1962 Nehru’s sister Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit kept the seat in the family by winning it in 1967 In 1971 future PM Vishwanath Pratap Singh who was then with Indian National Congress won from the constituency But Congress hasn’t won in Phulpur since 1984 — the candidate in that year was Ram Pujan Patel Patel then jumped parties joined the Janata Dal and won again in 1989 and 1991 According to a report in 2004 with the offices of the Congress in the constituency falling into disrepair a mafia done-turned-politician Ateeq Ahmed (SP) won But by 2009 BSP gained the seat through Kapil Muni Karwariya Now in a bid to turn things around the Congress has fielded cricketer Mohammed Kaif from Phulpur as their candidate for the Lok Sabha elections To put it simply he has been asked to fight from a seat where the Congress hasn’t won in 30 years now And given the current wave against the Congress it will be anything but easy His inexperience won’t help either Till a few days ago — he was playing for UP in the Ranji Trophy so it is clear that he wouldn’t have had time to prepare for this so he’s certainly going in minus any groundwork In the constituency that the Congress has clearly chosen to forget Kaif will have his job cut out To put it even more simply he needs a miracle Being a cricketer is part of the solution for Kaif People instantly associate him with the great Natwest triumph of 2002 and with that association comes a feeling of trust; a feeling that says he isn’t corrupt When he speaks it is more likely that the people will listen "I was born and brought up in Allahabad I have played cricket in the streets of this city People looked at me with pride when I played for India I am hopeful that they will support me" Kaif told PTI over phone "After cricket politics is like a second innings for me I hope to be as successful in politics as I was in cricket" he said Asked if he would now retire from cricket Kaif dismissed the idea and said he would give equal attention to both politics and his game "I am in form now I have played two good innings scoring 80 and 70 in Jaipur only a few days ago" he said When asked if he had asked for a poll ticket he denied and said he got a call informing him about his selection as a Congress candidate to which he had agreed Kaif however refused to reveal the identity of the caller "People feel that politics is dirty So I thought I will enter politics and show people that work is also being done in politics" he said Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association expressed happiness and surprise at Kaif`s selection as a poll candidate "I am not able to believe that Kaif is contesting polls" UPCA general manager Rohit Talwar said adding that if Kaif became an MP it would be good for the game Kaif is currently a member of the Uttar Pradesh Ranji cricket team He has represented India in 125 one-dayers and 13 Test matches and is notable for his performance against England in the 2002 NatWest series He also led the under-19 Indian team to World Cup victory in 2000 but to find victory this time round he will need to inspire not just himself and his team but all the people of Phulpur as well In the past year we’ve seen a few political miracles take place and Kaif will be hoping to conjure up the latest one Inputs from PTI Chandigarh: The drugs menace in Punjab a big talking point in the parliamentary elections has brought huge embarrassment to the ruling

sports arena but many others are not so lucky A study by the Institute for Development and Communication (IDC) Chandigarh headed by Dr Pramod Kumar showed that almost 65 per cent of addicts in Punjab
