BJP manifesto promises loan to farmers, unemployed

Releasing the 60-page ‘Suraj Sankalp Patra’, BJP President Rajnath Singh said people had lost faith in political manifestos released by other parties and hence his party had named it differently.

State BJP chief Vasundhara Raje told reporters that the party would ensure farmers get agriculture loans at 1 per cent interest and unemployed youths get up to Rs 20 lakh loan at 3 per cent to set up business. It promised to create 15 lakh new jobs in the next five year-term.

Power supply would be provided for 24 hours for domestic use and for 8 hours in three phases for farmers, Raje said.

Gujjars, Raika, Rebari (Dewasi), Banjara, Baldiya, Labana, Gardia Luhar and Gadoliya castes would be provided 5 per cent quota as Special-OBC, Raje said.

Pakistan refugees living in Rajasthan for decades would be offered housing, employment, education and nationality status and the party would seek the Centre’s cooperation in this regard, she said.

Claiming that BJP’s poll manifesto has got nothing new to offer to the voters, the Congress today alleged that the party’s promises on minority welfare schemes were misleading, and exposed its hollow poll plans.

In a statement here, chairman of Pradesh Congress Election Committee, Mumtaz Masih, said BJP has given only 6 tickets to Muslims in the three states going to polls in Delhi, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. ‘BJP has ditched the Muslim community’s candidates in Rajasthan by giving only four nominations for the Assembly polls,’ he said. He claimed that all 12-points programme mentioned for minority community in the manifesto were not true, and alleged that they were giving false impression.
