Kerala BJP focuses on agricultural, traditional sectors

Written by: Staff

Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 7 (UNI) The Bharatiya Janata Party in Kerala today emphasised that agricultural and traditional sectors would be given more prominence in the state's development.

Releasing the party's election manifesto here, BJP State president P S Sreedharan Pillai alleged that both the United Democratic Front and the Left Democratic Front had failed on all fronts.

Though Kerala boasted of cent per cent literacy and overall development in all spheres, Kerala was far behind and was still considered a ''dependent state'', he said.

Promising a debtless, povertyless and a developed Kerala, he said the party would give prominence to agricultural and traditional sectors.

In the agricultural sector, the manifesto said the interest rate of agricultural loans would be reduced, price of fertilisers brought down and electricity subsidy provided.

For the development of the traditional sector, an ''Artisans University'' would be established.

It also promised to start a ship service between Thiruvananthapuram and Vizhinjam and also bring in new developments in the transport sector.

Saying that the BJP stood for religious harmony, the party said it would take all steps to prevent conversions.
