Bennie Garza | 06 May, 2018, 06:35

The BJP manifesto states that the BJP will spend Rs 1.5 lakh crore on irrigation projects in the state, which will be completed by 2023 and that farmers will get 1.5 times the cost of production as minimum support price.

"The document proposes to waive all farmers" loans up to Rs 1 lakh from nationalised and cooperative banks in the very first Cabinet meeting after the swearing-in of the new government. The focus will be on improving production and productivity, reducing production cost and wastage, increase value addition, price stabilisation, organic farming, integrated pest management and high unit value realisation in export markets.

The BJP manifesto asserting that it was committed to the welfare of farmers and development of the agriculture sector comes a day after Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi released a scorecard of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Congress had released its election manifesto both for the state and the region wise has announced rupees 8,165 crore farm loan wavier.

The forthcoming Karnataka elections have become a battleground for Congress and BJP to prove themselves. In order to woo youth, Congress promised to provide free smartphones to 18 to 23 year-old students going to college, how could the BJP remain behind? The manifesto said Rs 25,000 and 3 gm of gold will be provided to brides of families living Below Poverty Line (BPL) at the time of marriage under the "Vivaha Mangala" scheme.

The manifesto also states the party's intention to revive the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Preservation Bill 2012 (Go Seva Ayog) and also sets aside a Rs 3,000-crore Kamadhenu Fund for the objective of animal husbandry and dairy farming infrastructure development.

Speaking after releasing the manifesto at a private hotel, BSY also said that an opportunity would be provided to the farmers to tour China and Japan. The state's Congress government already runs Indira Canteens- a chain of fast-food joints- in several places.

"The people of Karnataka are inclined towards BJP and we will win with a clear majority in the state".

The Congress promised 50 per cent hike in employability and creation of 15 lakh to 20 lakh jobs a year and also try to raise the employment level of women to 50 per cent in the government.

The party said it was committed to make Bengaluru a "zero garbage" city, by recycling of all sewage generated and through other steps.
