Loaded with freebies for all

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday released the Samajwadi Party’s election manifesto, promising freebies for every section of the society.

The party supremo maintained that the SP would contest the Assembly polls and seek the mandate of the people again on the basis of the developmental works undertaken by his government.

It was released at the SP headquarters in the absence of party patron and Akhilesh’s father Mulayam Singh Yadav and his younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav.

The manifesto promises to double the Samajwadi pension to Rs 1,000, subsidise meals for labourers, give free wheat and rice to the poor, while continuing the scheme to provide smartphones to the youths of the state.

To fight malnutrition, Akhilesh promised to provide 1 kg of pure ghee and milk powder free to government primary school students.

For women belonging to  economically weaker sections, he promised to give away pressure cookers and provide 50% fare concession while travelling by state buses.

The chief minister, while releasing the manifesto, also showcased the works undertaken by his government over the past four and a half years, and challenged his political opponents to draw a parallel. “We have initiated several measures to take UP on the path of development...
we will carry forward this work if we come to power again,” he said.
