"We want that the people of Haryana should give us a chance. In our manifesto, we have taken care to address every section of the society including farmers, traders, employees, students, Dalits and the weaker sections. Basic problems like drinking water, power, roads, education, health and employment will be addressed on priority basis if we come to power," BJP general secretary Shivraj Singh Chauhan told reporters in Chandigarh after releasing the manifesto.
Congress sweeps through Haryana
Targeting both the Om Prakash Chautala-led ruling Indian National Lok Dal and the Congress, he alleged "both accuse each other of indulging in rampant corruption. The truth is that Chautala's regime has exceeded the records of corruption set by the previous Congress regimes and now Congress will do the same if it is allowed to return to power".
The BJP, which has decided to contest all the 90 assembly seats on its own this time after breaking ties with the INLD about a year back, asked the people to decide if they wanted to be on INLD's side, "under which corruption, dynastic rule and jungle raj has flourished", the Congress which was putting the burden on common man with "rocketing price rise" or vote for the saffron party which "will root out all these evils".
