LUCKNOW: Locked in a tight fight, BJP today promised sops for students, women and farmers in its manifesto for Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls including waiver of farm loans and providing 24×7 electricity besides making efforts to get Ram temple built in Ayodhya within the law.
Besides the Ram temple, the BJP also brought up issues like triple talaq and exodus of people on communal lines in its 24-page manifesto released by BJP President Amit Shah, even as it promised to close down all illegal slaughter houses in the State on coming to power.
Shah told reporters that the party will make efforts to ensure construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya “under constitutional provisions”, as the party sought to woo all sections in a bid to form the Government in UP after 15 years.
BJP, Shah said, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would turn UP into a developed State, the way it has developed the other states it rules.
“All BIMARU – Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh – states have become developed except UP,” he said.
On the contentious issue of triple talaq, Shah said if the BJP comes to power it will take the views of Muslim women and will present their opinion before the Supreme Court. (AGENCIES)
