INC Candidate List for General Elections 2014
Founded in the year 1885 under the guidance of British civil servant Allan Octavian Hume, the Indian National Congress (INC),
popularly known as the Congress, is the country’s oldest political party. Today it is one of the two major national political parties, other being the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and operates on the ideology of Gandhian Socialism and Social Democracy. Its political position is centre-left in contrast to BJP which is the right-wing religious nationalist.

Members of the Theosophical Society, namely Dadabhai Naoroji, Surendranath Banerjee, M.G. Ranade, Womesh Chandra Bonnerjee, Dinshaw Wacha, Monomohun Ghose and William Wedderburn, headed by A.O. Hume, established the Indian National Congress to play a pivotal role in the Indian freedom struggle against the British rule. Liberal nationalism became the war-cry of the Congress, drawing to it more than 15 million members and triple the number of participants in the anti-imperialist struggle. Though it began as a political party, the INC was symbolic of the largest vehicle of the Indian National Movement in the pre-independent era, being the sole representative of the people of the country and representing social reform causes and human progress.

The Congress is credited with a number of historic demands and movements of the freedom struggle. With Mahatma Gandhi adorning the centre stage of Indian freedom struggle, a number of other members of the Congress joined the freedom struggle. Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Jayaprakash Narayan, Jivatram Kripalani, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Rajendra Prasad and others followed in the aura of Gandhian policy of Satyagraha and his concept of non-violence. The Congress became increasingly popular among the masses, though with years, it began to identify itself with the big business houses of the Tata’s and the Birla’s. In the final years of the British rule, the Congress became synonymous to the leadership and spiritual guidance of Mahatma Gandhi. With the independence of India being achieved in 1947 and the immediate assassination of Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru became the sole undisputed head of the INC in independent India. The INC faced severe crisis in 1967, when Indira Gandhi, the then President of Congress, faced criticisms and oppositions from the majority members of the INC, as her leadership failed to achieve success in the states of the Hindi belt. The Congress witnessed a split, as a result of the growing tensions between the elder members and the young members of the INC. The faction headed by Indira Gandhi came to be called Congress (R) or the ‘New Congress’ and the official and original Congress party led by Kamaraj came to be called Indian National Congress (Organization) or INC(O) or the ‘Old Congress’. Soon however, the Election Commission of India identified the ‘New Congress’ as the official Congress. With Indira Gandhi becoming autocratic and dictatorial in her approach, as the Congress President as well as the PM of India, increasing factionalism took place within the Congress party. In the face of severe opposition, she unleashed a police state in the country by proclaiming a National Emergency in 1975. She lifted the emergency in 1977 when fresh elections were held. Indira Gandhi’s authoritarian rule led to the first electoral defeat of the Congress in the hands of the Janata Party in 1977.


The present President of the INC is Indira Gandhi’s daughter-in-law Sonia Gandhi, the wife of Rajiv Gandhi. The present Vice President of the INC is Sonia Gandhi’s son Rahul Gandhi. The Nehru-Gandhi legacy has percolated to the party’s top leadership even today. The Congress has won a number of general elections in the country. The 2009 elections made the Congress form the present government in a Congress-led UPA alliance. Manmohan Singh is the present Prime Minister of India, and represents the Congress party.

Election Symbol and its Significance



The election symbol of the Congress party, as approved by the Election Commission of India, is the “right hand”, with its palm-side facing front. It is usually seen in the centre of an Indian flag, which forms its background. The fingers of the hand are pressed together. This election symbol is significant as it was selected by the Indira Gandhi led Congress (R), which later came to be recognized as the official Congress.

The symbol of the original Congress, founded in 1885 was different - it had a symbol of ‘two bullocks with plough’. The present hand symbol was first used by Indira Gandhi as she split from the old faction and created the New Congress. The hand is symbolic of strength, energy and unity. The Congress is the largest democratic party in the country with the largest number of members and party worker. The Congress, according to its symbol, works in unity with the members and the masses, thereby forming a strong party. The working of the Congress, which follows various ranks within its organizational structure, is also representative of the energy and efforts needed to function as a party.

The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) is the smallest functional unit of the Congress, present at the state-level in every state or Pradesh. Together, the delegates of the PCCs form the All India Congress Committee (AICC). This structured working of the party lends unity, show of strength and effort to rule across India.

Leaders of Congress



The Congress Working Committee is the highest decision-making body of the INC. The leaders of the INC, who are also their representatives and national executives, are:
  • Sonia Gandhi, President of INC

Achievements of Congress



As the oldest-surviving national political party, the INC has had a number of achievements in the political scenario of the country. Some of these are listed below:
  • The INC has a number of frontal organizations and mass wings under its banner. Its student wing called the National Students Union of India (NSUI) has a vibrant presence in student politics across the country. It has contributed to the cause of women through its women’s wing called All India Mahila Congress. Its labour wing, one of the largest trade unions in the country, is called Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC). Its youth wing is called Indian Youth Congress.
  • The UPA-1 and UPA-2 governments, successively in power in 2004 and 2009, have initiated some of the important social policies like Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, Rural Health Mission. The party claims to take into account the causes of the marginalized and underprivileged sections of the society through Reservation Policies in all sectors of government jobs and education. The INC also supports the family planning with birth control scheme, though it does not overtly adhere to it in terms of a policy etc. The INC claims to operate on the Gandhian principles of Sarvodaya or upliftment of all sections of the society.
  • The INC has had healthy foreign relations with countries of USA, European Union and other SAARC countries. The UPA government initiated peace talks with bordering countries of China and Pakistan. The INC has maintained the policy of non-alignment as its major foreign intervention. In fact, Jawaharlal Nehru was the founder of the Non-Alignment Movement. The successive Congress governments have been participants in major international organizations like World Trade Organization, G20 Industrial Summits, International Monetary Fund, United Nations, UN Security Council, East Asia Summit and others.
  • The Congress government has been a proponent of economic neo-liberalism, as its economic policy from 1991. They have initiated free market policies and other schemes such as disinvestment of profit making PSUs, introducing FDIs in finance sector and MNCs in retail sector. These have been opposed by other political parties as being anti-people.

Other significant legislations passed by the Congress are Lokpal and Lokayukta Bill, Benami Transaction Prohibition Bill, Whistle Blowers Protection Bill, Public Procurement Bill and others.
