Dehradun: PBCN:The BJP released its vision document for Uttarakhand on Saturday which promises a slew of freebies including free laptops and smartphones for meritorious students besides giving a boost to health facilities and making them available to every section of society.
The state will go to polls on February 15.
Releasing the vision document, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said BJP is proud of documenting the party’s vision for the development of a state which it created during its last stint in power at the Centre.
“It is a proud moment for BJP to spell out its vision for a state which acquired statehood under NDA as the fulfilment of the long cherished aspiration of the people living in this region,” Jaitley said.
He said the document which envisions clean governance for Uttarakhand is in sync with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commitment for accelerating the country along the highway of growth.
Noting that development was the biggest casualty of lack of political stability in Uttarakhand, he said the state which has tremendous potential in the education and tourism sectors can realise the full potential of its growth only when BJP comes to power here and works in partnership with the Centre for its development.
The 14-page document with the pictures of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah on the cover besides those of the five MPs, former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna, Satpal Maharaj and Pradesh BJP president Ajay Bhatt on the cover promises to develop the state as an education hub by reviewing the education policy and putting in place an education system with emphasis on quality.
