Lucknow: Releasing its manifesto, the Communist Party of India (CPI) on Saturday promised to implement the recommendations of the Ranganath Misra commission and Sachar committee for the uplift and welfare of Muslims in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.

The election manifesto also reiterated the party's resolve for a law granting 33 per cent reservation to women in state legislatures and Parliament.

The manifesto held the ruling BSP, SP, Congress and BJP responsible for corruption, inflation and increasing crime in the state.

The CPI claimed that it was due to the Left parties' pressure during UPA-I that NREGS and RTI came into existence.

The party said it would contest 55 seats in the coming elections.
