Making its maiden pitch for power in Bihar, the BJP on Thursday released its vision document promising five decimal land to the landless for housing, laptops to 50,000 meritorious students and two-wheelers to 5,000 girls passing class X and XII examinations.
All homeless people will be given houses equipped with pure drinking water, toilet and electricity by 2022, the BJP’s vision document said.
The saffron party, as a senior coalition partner under the NDA banner, has proposed an education loan guarantee scheme under which loan will be made available at the rate of three per cent. Students of weaker sections will get special scholarship for technical and professional education, while a special bureau will be set up to make available information to those students aspiring to go abroad for higher education.
In order to improve literacy ratio in Bihar, the BJP has proposed to make one member of each family an e-literate.
It will be mandatory to have toilets in a household for a person applying for loan from a government agency. The party has also proposed to come up with a separate agriculture budget.
