BJP releases poll manifesto

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 21 � Asserting that the Congress party has no moral right to seek the mandate of the electorate as it failed to propel the State on the right track of development even after ruling for more than 55 years, the BJP on Monday appealed to the voters to give it a chance in the ensuing Assembly elections.

Releasing the party�s manifesto at a function held at the Pragjyoti ITA Centre for Performing Arts, Machkhowa, former national president Rajnath Singh said that in the last several decades of Congress tenure, Assam gained only in poverty and unemployment.

The party�s manifesto promises a transparent and accountable government to the people of Assam and highlights the necessary steps to build a new and progressive State by taking into consideration the aspirations of all sections of the population.

Apart from assuring to protect the rights of the indigenous communities by freeing Assam of illegal migrants, the manifesto touches on price rise pledging to provide rice, wheat and the essential commodities at prices affordable by the poor. In the manifesto, the BJP reveals its opposition to big dams, its commitment towards expediting economic development by raising the GDP growth of the State to 14 per cent.

On the other hand, the manifesto clearly mentions that if need be new rules will be framed to eliminate corruption that has become the order of the day in Assam and to punish the perpetrators of corruption. The party even has stated that if any person refuses to be part of the birth control programme on religious ground or is involved in activities that adds to the population explosion, stringent action would be taken in such cases and if necessary laws would be framed.

�The BJP has a clear cut approach. We are seeking the mandate of the people by promising good governance,� said Singh adding that the BJP on coming to power will ensure that the indigenous people got their right over land.

Singh said that the Congress government has even failed to take up the issues of Arunachal Pradesh and diversion of Brahmaputra water in China which were crucial to the well being of North East. �The BJP will exert all the diplomatic pressure on China once it comes to power,� assured Singh.

The function today was attended by the senior state and central leaders of the party. National general secretary Vijay Goel, MPs Rajen Gohain, Ramen Deka and Bijoya Chakravorty, State BJP president Ranjit Dutta, new entrant in the party Sarbananda Sonowal and many others were present.
