Bihar assembly elections 2020: RJD promises 85% quota for natives in govt jobs | Patna News – Times of India


PATNA: Keeping its focus firmly on employment as its main poll plank, RJD on Saturday launched its manifesto announcing 85% reservation in government jobs for Bihar residents, apart from reinforcing its promise of 10 lakh government jobs, elimination of contractual employment and an increase in the honorarium of self-help groups.
The party also announced to spend 22% of the state’s budget on education and open schools like Simultala and Netarhat in all divisions, three to five residential schools in all districts and 100 smart schools of “international level” in the first three years. Apart from Hindi, English and computer education will be a must in all schools.
Launching the manifesto titled ‘Pran Hamara, Sankalp Badlav Ka’, the Mahagathbandhan CM face, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, said, “This is not just a manifesto, but our pledge which is soon going to become a reality. We will make a happy, prosperous and developed Bihar.”
He added, “Some people were making fun of the 10 lakh government jobs which we have promised. Let me make it clear that we are going to give government jobs, unlike others we are not talking about generating employment, which also means frying ‘pakoda’ and cleaning drains.”
The manifesto also promises a Rs 1,500 allowance for unemployed youths up to 35 years of age and has vowed to double the honorarium of self-help groups.
Elaborating on his party’s other promises, Tejashwi said, “The manifesto talks about creating smart villages, increasing the honorarium of self-help groups, equal pay for equal work, tapping industrial sectors and promoting local products, infrastructure and environment among others.”
There are 17 major chapters in the RJD manifesto which begins with employment and self-employment, which Tejashwi has made a poll issue this time. Under this section, the party has promised a tax waiver for setting up industries, free form and conveyance for the entrance examination for jobs, along with 10 lakh government jobs.
In the health sector, it has promised a dialysis centre in all district hospitals and improved treatment facilities at the Sadar hospitals along with a medical college and hospital and a nursing college in all districts.
The party has also stressed on promoting animal husbandry, fisheries, honey production and promotion and sale of locally grown litchi, Zardalu mango, banana and its products, silk and local art forms.
The manifesto has messages from the party’s founder Lalu Prasad and former chief minister Rabri Devi, promising that all promises made in the document will be fulfilled.
