Today, Bhartiya Janta Party has released its manifesto which is focused on farmers and youth of the nation. The manifesto is the last attempt of the party to woo voters ahead of the first phase of polling in Chhattisgarh, state Agriculture Minister Brijmohan Agrawal said.

Brijmohan Agrawal, who heads the BJP’s manifesto drafting committee informed that BJP president Amit Shah has released the ‘Sankalp Patra’ in Raipur today.

Assembly elections for 18 seats in Chhattisgarh will take place on Monday and Saturday is the last day regarding the campaigning for the first phase of the Assembly polls in the state. However, the second phase of the elections for the remaining 72 constituencies will take place on the 20th of this month, said sources.

Minister Brijmohan Agrawal also asserted that the manifesto will be the game changer as it will put forward a vision of the new Chandigarh. As per the manifesto, the Chhattisgarh will be counted amongst the most developed states of the country by 2025, Agrawal added.

On being asked about the details of the manifesto by the media persons, Agrawal refused to come up with details and instead he briefed that the main focus of the manifesto will be on farmers and youth of the nation. He also revealed that the manifesto has been drafted with guidance from the party’s central leadership, including Shah.

“In the last one decade or so, the state has emerged as the rice bowl of the country and farmers’ incomes have jumped manifold. Our aim is that this should continue in the future as well,” he said.

Answering a question regarding the delay in the release of the manifesto, Agrawal said that with various teams travelling to different parts of the state, Bhartiya Janta Party is trying to reach out to the maximum number of people in order to seek suggestions which made the delay in releasing the manifesto.
