The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) manifesto for upcoming Lok Sabha elections has extended support to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s ambitious poll promise `Nyay scheme’, under which it has promised to provide Rs 72,000 every year to 20 per cent poor families.
The manifesto titled `Pratibadhata Patra’ was released by its leader Tejashwi Yadav. It promised reservation to Dalits and the backward classes on the basis of their population. Like Congress, the RJD also vowed to fill all vacant government posts. Besides, the party also assured implementation of Mandal Commission if voted to power.
Addressing the media, Yadav claimed that his party’s proposed blueprint in the manifesto is going to help uplift the poor and farmers in the society. “RJD has always favoured reservation in private sector. we will ensure it becomes a reality,” said the former Deputy Chief Minister.
Bihar will vote in all the seven phases of the elections, starting April 11. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
