The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) Saturday released its manifesto, which includes concrete or bitumen-topped roads for all grampanchayats, Rs 1 kg rice for slum-dwellers, bicycles for all class X students and a Food Security Act that ensures food security for people not covered under the BPL.
Orissa CM and BJD president Naveen Patnaik said this is the first time a party has guaranteed to fulfil the primary infrastructure in the areas of road communication, drinking water, electrification, irrigation, agriculture and education in rural and urban areas of the state, along with provision of adequate funds so these minimum needs are fulfilled in time.
The manifesto promised Orissa will have its own Food Security Act, which will have indicators other than the BPL to reflect economic status.
