BJP vows to set up Cauvery Management Board

 The BJP in Tamil Nadu said it would constitute Cauvery Management Board to get the required water from Karnataka, besides implementing the UDAY scheme, something the Jayalalithaa government failed.

Releasing the BJP's manifesto for the Assembly polls, party's former national president and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari claimed that it was a vision document for the state’s development. He said the BJP would take steps to setup Cauvery Management Board as per Supreme Court order for securing 205 TMC water from Karnataka.

"The UDAY scheme, rejected by the AIADMK government, will ensure uninterrupted power supply to all households in the State", Gadkari said.

The manifesto, besides promising to solve the fishermen issue, also pledged to waive farmers loans in the State if voted to power.

Vowing to remove all encroachments from water bodies, the manifesto also said the BJP would take up the sand business if voted to power.

Fifty % subsidy to solar projects, setting up Lok Ayukta, education on par with CBSE, introducing yoga and meditation from class VI and Rs 5,000 monthly assistance to girl till their 12th standard are some of the other salient features of the BJP manifesto.

The manifesto also assures gold for women living below the poverty line for marriage, 20 litres of free drinking water to each household, protection of temple lands, legislation against crime similar to MCOCA in Maharashtra and extending AYUSH scheme to all districts.
