Tripura Assembly elections FM Arun Jaitley releases BJP's 'Vision Document'

A party leader announced on Thursday."As implementation of the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC) for the Tripura government employees would be one of the key poll promise of BJP-IPFT alliance, the release of the party's "Vision Document" by Jaitley would be an important political step".

BJP releases its vision document for upcoming Tripura assembly polls; Party's national President Amit Shah holds a mega road show in the state.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC), which had faced a jolt previous year in the state after six of its MLAs joined the BJP, has formed an alliance with the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) and the National Conference of Tripura for the upcoming election.

Jaitley said top priority would be given to "development politics" championed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

BJP released its 28-page "Vision Document" on Sunday, promising employment opportunities for every household, free education for women up to the graduate level, a college in every constituency and, in a push to its Digital India initiative, free smartphones for youths.

He said the non-Left space in Tripura had now been utterly occupied by the BJP. "BJP worked in every state in an organised manner to garner support and importance", the senior BJP leader said.

It promised an investigation into the Rose Valley scam and those found guilty would be jailed. Jaitley also criticised the Congress and said the main opposition party of the region had betrayed the people of Tripura. The party has also promised it will fill up more than 50,000 vacant state government posts. The minimum grant under social welfare schemes would be Rs 2000 per month and the minimum wage would be Rs 340, the vision document said, adding CBI inquiry into the killing of two journalists - Shantanu Bhowmick and Sudip Datta Bhowmick -would be instituted. The election results will be declared on March 3.
