The Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (Panwar) faction would be releasing its election manifesto around January 8. The party, which was formed with the aim of realising the regional aspirations of the people, focuses on addressing the problems in the hill areas of the state.
Apart from the party’s commitment to make Gairsain the capital of Uttarakhand, the UKD (P) manifesto, would also raise the demand to provide reservation in government jobs to the students who pass out from government schools of the state.
President of UKD (P) Trivendra Singh Panwar said that the students of the government schools in the state usually lagged behind in getting jobs and so they would be provided proper reservation. The issues related to water, forest and land would be given prominence. The manifesto also called for stopping migration from the hill areas of the state and the UKD would come out with a cogent policy to achieve this objective.
Working president of UKD (P) AP Juyal said that if voted to power their party would initiate steps to set up Chakbandi Commission in the state that would look after consolidation of landholdings in the hill areas and bring the much needed relief to the farmers.
Steps would be taken to check entry of wild animals in the areas of habitation. The farmers who suffered losses due to wild animals would be provided double compensation. Juyal said that the rehabilitation work in the hill and plain areas of the state were done on same parameters, which would be changed so as to provide benefit to the people of hill areas.
