Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday released the BJP-led NDA manifesto for the Kerala assembly elections. It has promised to bring legislation in the Sabarimala temple and the Love Jihad case. Several promises have also been made, including employment to at least one member of each family and giving free laptops to high school students.
Javadekar claimed in a press conference that the BJP’s manifesto is progressive, dynamic and focused on development. Kerala was waiting for a similar manifesto. Taking a dig at the Left-led state government, Javadekar said that by making minor changes in the projects of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, there was an attempt to use it as his plan in front of the people.
He said, speaking of the key points, this manifesto employs at least one member of the family, freeing Kerala from terrorism and hunger, Sabarimala law (to preserve the tradition of the temple), free laptops to high school students and Love guarantees the law against jihad. Landless members of SC / ST community will be given five acres of land for agricultural purposes. The manifesto also promises six LPG cylinders for free to families below the poverty line.
