The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday assured several welfare measures in Odisha, including permanent land records, jobs to youths and pucca houses, if it is voted to power in the forthcoming elections.
"We will fulfil the dream of Prime Minister Narendra Modi if BJP is voted to power in Odisha. We assure that every poor across the country will get the permanent land record and pucca house by 2022," said Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan.
Pradhan was addressing the party's "Pratisruti Samabesh" here.
He said the BJP will also provide other necessary facilities like drinking water, toilets, electricity and LPG connections to people in Odisha, and targeted the Biju Janata Dal (BJD)-led Odisha government for failing to do so in their last 19-years tenure.
The BJD in its 2014 election manifesto had promised to provide pucca houses to all poor people. But it has failed to fulfil the promise, he said.
He also pointed out that while 20 lakh people in the state don't have land records, about 30 lakh people have no houses yet.
The BJP has has lined up several Central leaders to campaign in the state ahead to the General and Assembly elections.
The BJP President Amit Shah will be addressing a party meeting at Sambalpur on February 15. Union Home Ministers Rajnath Singh, Giriraj Singh and Manoj Sinha, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will be visiting several parts of the state under the campaign "Parivartan Samabesh", which will continue till March 2 in all Assembly constituencies, said state BJP President Basant Panda.
