Addressing a rally in support of BJP's South Goa candidate Narendra Sawaikar, Sawant said 8,000 to 10,000 employment opportunities will be created in the government and 20,000 to 30,000 in the private sector.
Sawant also promised to resolve the issues faced by sugarcane growers in rural talukas.
"Sugarcane cultivation is done in a big way in Sanguem and surrounding areas. I am well aware about the problems being faced by sugarcane farmers due to troubles at the state-run sugar factory in Usgaon," he said.
Sawaikar, a sitting MP from South Goa, is squaring off against Congress' Francisco Sardinha and Elvis Gomes of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The Shiv Sena has fielded Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik from the constituency that covers as many as 20 assembly segments.
