BJP Ashok Parnami today said the has fulfilled all the promises it made in its 2013 Assembly election manifesto.

Addressing a press conference after the government today presented its last budget, Parnami said has focused on all the sectors and sections of the society and provided relief to small and marginal farmers by announcing one-time loan waiver of upto Rs 50,000.

"Of all the total 611 promises made in the Assembly manifesto in 2013, 500 were fulfilled in the last four budgets and remaining will be fulfilled this year before elections.

"Rest of the promises were included today in the last budget of Raje's present tenure," Parnami said.

Highlighting the budget announcements, Parnami said the has tried to touch every sector with a good financial management.

The BJP government has constantly worked for the welfare of farmers, Parnami alleged, adding it was wrong agriculture policies of the government which made farmers debt- ridden.

"ruled for 50 years but no crop loan was waived. Its wrong policies were responsible for burden of debt on farmers," he said.

The party's further added that it was not an election budget.

"Congress' allegation that it is an election budget is totally baseless. The budget is dedicated to farmers, women, youth, entrepreneurs and all other sections of the society," he said.
