Telangana Elections: AAP promises Rs 3 lakh loan waiver for farmers
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday released its party manifesto that includes loan waiver for farmers, a house for roofless and higher budget allocation for agriculture, for the ensuing Telangana Assembly elections on December 7, an official said.
The party manifesto was released during the poll rally at Nampally in Hyderabad.
The manifesto promised a Rs 3-lakh loan waiver for farmers and a two-bedroom house for those who do not have any property.
“The political revolution called AAP has arrived and is here to fight and win against the traditional political rot of Telangana,” the party wrote on its official Facebook page.
Along with manifesto, AAP also announced the names of its first set of 15 candidates for the elections.
The AAP in-charge of the southern states and Delhi MLA Somnath Bharti had said the Arvind Kejriwal-led party would contest all the 119 assembly seats.
The AAP would provide 20,000 kilo litres of free clean drinking water every month for each household and also pay half the rate for electricity, it said.
Convenor of the AAP local unit Ramu Goud said the party was planning to complete the process of selecting the candidates by this month-end.
At present, AAP has no presence in the outgoing dissolved assembly, however the party had predicted a hung assembly in the December 7 elections with no single party getting majority.
Meanwhile the party also promised a ‘Delhi Model’ government in the poll-bound southern state.
Earlier, Bharti had also claimed an “unspoken anti-incumbency" prevailed against the K Chandrasekhar Rao government in Telangana.
