Haryana Assembly Elections 2019: INLD releases party manifesto, promises Rs 10 lakh farm loan waiver, Rs 15,000 monthly allowance to unemployed
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: With just a few days left ahead of the assembly polls in Haryana, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) on Saturday released its manifesto making a number of promises such as youth unemployment allowance and farm love waiver in a bid to attract the voters.
In presence of senior leaders, INLD state president Birbal Das released party manifesto promising a monthly unemployment allowance of youths in Haryana.
"It will also be ensured by law that the private sector employs 75 per cent of the workforce from Haryana. Similarly, the old-age pension, which was pioneered by the INLD, will be enhanced to Rs 5,000 per month," Dhalia was quoted as saying by ANI.
Dhalia added that INLD would implement the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission regarding minimum selling price (MSP) for farmer's crops. Besides this, INLD also promised Rs 10 lakh farm loan waiver on a priority basis.
"In addition, this loan waiver up to Rs 10 lakh will also be extended to small traders to enable them to come out of the prolonged period of economic slump faced by them," Dhalia told ANI.
Another reform in the farm sector proposed by INLD is the withdrawal of GST imposed on seeds, fertilisers, pesticides, agricultural implements and tractors.
The party said that women from economically weaker sections would get Rs 5 lakh during their marriage as 'Kanyadaan' by the state government. Girls would be provided free education while poor women at the age between 35 to 65 years will receive a monthly allowance of Rs 2,000.
INLD also shared its plans to introduce modern sewage equipment to save such workers who lose their lives due to unhygienic conditions and will be provided an insurance cover of Rs 10 lakh each.
The state assembly polls will be held on October 21 and the fate of the candidates will be decided on October 24. INLD had seen a drop of 12 seats in the 2014 state assembly polls, managing to win just 19 seats.
