Bihar Election: RJD manifesto promises to 10 lakh jobs, free laptops, farm loan waiver and Rs 1,500 unemployment allowance

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav released the party’s manifesto for Bihar elections in Patna Saturday and stressed again that if voted to power he will provide 10 lakh jobs immediately as well as an unemployment allowance of Rs 1,500. The Grand Alliance chief ministerial face also promised loan waiver to farmers in the state, and reduction in electricity tariff.

It has also promised that all the villages in Bihar will be turned into smart villages if the RJD is elected to power. “This is not a manifesto but it is a promise. It is a promise of change. It is a detailed document touching upon all relevant aspects to make Bihar prosperous,” said Yadav.

“People used to mock us, how will we give employment…jobs. There is a difference between earning and jobs. One can earn by selling pakodas, cleaning the drains, or picking up garbage. We are not saying that. We are clearly saying that we will provide 10 lakh jobs. We are going to provide government jobs in our first cabinet meeting itself,” said Yadav.

Apart from the immediately filling up the 4.5 lakh vacant positions in the state government, an additional 5.5 lakh jobs would be provided in medicine, education, engineering and police services, he said.

“The 4.5 lakh jobs would be provided immediately. There is provision in the government. Aaj tak hawaa hawai baatein hua karti thi lekin ye humaara Sankalp patra hai (We’re not making empty promises). Like it used to be done before… We are making a promise and we will deliver on it,” said Yadav.

Bihar with 243 assembly seats will go to polls in three phases: October 28, November 3 and November 7. The results will be declared on November 10.
