Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in its manifesto for the November 28 assembly elections promised to provide 10 lakh jobs per year to youths in Madhya Pradesh and welfare of all sections of society. The manifesto was released on Saturday.
The BJP is in power in the state since 2003 and trying to retain its power despite the opposition's Congress' allegations of a collapse of governance and its failure to work for agriculturists.
Last year wide-scale protests by farmers took place for better Minimum Support Price for their produce and other demands in Madhya Pradesh. The protest forced the government to announce effective measures.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley released the manifesto at the state BJP headquarters here. The manifesto is named "Drishti Patra" or vision document.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan told journalists, "We will provide 10 lakh jobs and self-employment opportunities per year for the youth of the state".
"We have prepared a roadmap for the development of the state as well as the welfare of each section of the society," he said.
The manifesto also contains promises like measures to ensure the welfare of farmers, women, backward classes and traders, besides the youth, in the state.
