The Shiv Sena – Bharatiya Janata Party alliance released its poll manifesto – ‘Vachan Nama’ – in the run up to the October 13 elections to the Maharashtra Assembly on Monday.
The document promises a separate ministry for welfare of nomadic tribes, 15 per cent quota in jobs and educational institutions for economically backward classes and stabilised prices.
Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray released the manifesto in the presence of senior BJP leaders Gopinath Munde and Nitin Gadkari at the Shiv Sena Bhavan in Mumbai.
Speaking to correspondents, Thackeray said, the Sena-BJP alliance, if voted to power, will provide a people-centric government to the people in the state.
He said that a ‘Shiv Sampark Cell’ employing state-of-the-art technology would be established to facilitate people-government contact and that a separate ministry would be created to co-ordinate between the government and the people.
