Parrikar Gives Glimpse Of BJP Manifesto

A look into BJP’s manifesto for the upcoming polls shows that the ruling party is going to focus on a comprehensive mobility plan for the state, which includes Metro train facility, revealed Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.

“The manifesto will speak about comprehensive mobility plan for the state. How you will travel across Goa. This will include electric buses, inter-city buses and even Metro (train) facility,” Parrikar told reporters in Vasco last evening after addressing a party meeting.

Not getting into the details of the manifesto, he assured that the manifesto with their vision for the coming term will be unveiled on January 25-26.

He further assured that if voted to power, the saffron party will ensure that there is a link the social welfare and educational schemes to inflation.

“All the social welfare and educational schemes would be connected to inflation. There will be automatic increase in the amount (fund) of the scheme based on the inflation index,” the former state Chief Minister said.

He also cleared that the rumour of him supporting some independent candidates on certain seats where his party has also fielded its own candidates was false.

“BJP has fielded candidates in 36 constituencies and has extended support in four constituencies. Besides these four, I have not extended support to any other Independent candidate,” Parrikar said.
