Jan Chetna Party (JCP) released its manifesto on Sunday at HUDA Sector 8 ground here in the presence of Haryana Janhit Party (HJC) chief Kuldeep Bishnoi. Speaking on the occasion, JCP chief Venod Sharma said if his government came to power, people would get six additional cylinders free of cost per year in addition to 12 subsidised LPG cylinders.

He said interviews for government jobs would be scrapped and merit based employment registration system would be introduced and jobs would be given in proportion to the population of the communities while, 33% jobs would be reserved for women.

He said that focus would be on e-governance and birth and death certificates would be given without hassles, 24 hour power supply would be ensured and share of SYL water would be brought.

He said that industry would be asked to give 80% jobs to local residents and the toll plazas in the state would be removed adding that free crop insurance for farmers and the fixing of minimum support price would be rationalised.

He said that student body elections would be held every year.

Lashing out at the Congress government, he said that for 45 years no development has taken place on the districts on GT road from Panipat to Ambala, adding that neglect was under a definite design of successive governments.

Sharma said that it was ironic that the national highway between Panipat and Ambala has not been completed for more than a decade even though Congress was ruling both at the state and the centre.

He said no big industry has been established from Faridabad to Ambala in the last decade while four universities have been opened in 40-km radius of Rohtak.

Regretting the shifting of Industrial Model Township (IMT) from Ambala to Rohtak, Sharma said that it was his dream project and he had done great efforts and the employment opportunities in thousands would have been created.

Sharma alleged that the jobs in the state were on sale and the merit was being ignored adding that when his party raised the demand of scrapping staff selection commission (SSC) which has become a den of corruption they were beaten up.

He claimed that his government would bring transparency in employees' selection.

HJC president who had reached at the rally venue three hours late, said that both the parties have been strengthened by the alliance and a change in state politics can be anticipated.

On the sidelines of the rally, in reply to question to Hindustan Times, Venod Sharma said that both parties would soon decide the number of seats to be fought and Kuldeep Bishnoi would be chief ministerial candidate of the alliance.
