BJP’s ‘vision document’ for Bihar polls on Thursday

Patna: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will on Thursday release the BJP’s ‘vision document’ for the Bihar assembly elections in the presence of party president Amit Shah and other union ministers, a party leader said on Wednesday.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Bhupender Yadav, who is in charge of the party in Bihar, said Jaitley will release the ‘vision document’ a day ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally in Banka.

Yadav said the vision document will focus on women empowerment, education, jobs to youth and infrastructure development.

“The vision document will chart out a plan to develop Bihar in the next five years if the BJP-led NDA wins the polls and forms the next government,” he said.

The party’s “main plank is development in Bihar”, he said.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, in his vision document for the next five years, spoke of his seven-point agenda to develop Bihar. This included free Wi-Fi in college and university campuses and a student credit card scheme for loans to pursue higher and professional education and unemployment allowance to support themselves while finding jobs.

Nitish Kumar’s vision document also promised electricity and toilets in every home, and piped water that will benefit 16 lakh families.

The BJP is contesting 160 of the 243 assembly seats.
