With Assembly elections in Haryana scheduled for October 13, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) on Wednesday released its manifesto and promised sops to every section of the society which included a monthly allowance of Rs 3,000 to unemployed graduates.
The manifesto was released at a press conference here by INLD general secretary and Rajya Sabha MP Ajay Chautala and party’s state unit president Ashok Arora.
The manifesto aims to bring back the era of party founder and former deputy prime minister Devi Lal and has a punchline of ‘Apna Vaada, Kaam Ka Irada´ (our promise is to deliver).
Wooing the youth, he said if INLD came to power it would ensure 50 per cent reservation for them in private sector and provide a monthly unemployment allowance of Rs 3,000 to all unemployed graduates.
“Every student in Haryana shall receive free education upto graduation in any stream,” he said promising to set up a university in the backward Ahirwal region of the state.
Chautala said the party would rekindle the people-friendly policies of late Devi Lal, and would wave-off loans upto Rs 1 lakh for farmers, labourers, backward classes, small traders, service class and other professionals.
Terming the recent announcement of bonus of Rs 100 per quintal wheat by the Centre as a “cruel joke”, Chautala said if his party comes to power it would give Rs 1,400 per quintal MSP to the farmers for wheat with the difference being borne by the state government.
