A separate ministry for welfare of nomadic tribes, 15 per cent quota in jobs and educational institutions for economically backward classes and stabilising prices have been promised in the manifesto of Shiv Sena-BJP alliance for the October 13 Maharashtra Assembly elections.

The manifesto or 'vachan nama' was released by Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray in the presence of senior BJP leaders Gopinath Munde and Nitin Gadkari at Shiv Sena Bhavan in central Mumbai here today.

"The Shiv Sena-BJP if voted to power will provide a people-centric government and involve people in decision-making," Thackeray told reporters.

'Shiv Sampark Cell' with state-of-the-art technology will be established to keep abreast of the people's problems and a separate ministry will be created to co-ordinate between the government and the people, he said.

Thackeray said Shiv Sena had earlier set up a helpline and also created an email-Id seeking suggestions for preparing the saffron alliance's manifesto and the initiative drew an overwhelming response.

"We don't intend to stop this initiative after elections and will continue this dialogue with citizens," he said.
