Raipur. As Himachal Congress kicked off the election campaign with ten guarantees on Wednesday, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister and senior observer for Himachal assembly elections Bhupesh Baghel had not only become the witness of the launching of the campaign but also played a key role in the manifesto.
Like the Chhattisgarh government, Himachal Congress has promised to restore the Old Pension Scheme (OPS) if the party comes to power. Similarly, every household electricity consumer will receive free electricity up to 300 units, Rs 1500 per month for women between the ages of 18 and 60, employment for 5 lakh youth, fixed prices for fruits, and the right to do so for planters.
The manifesto promised a startup fund of Rs 680 crores for the youth, mobile clinics for free treatment in every village, four English medium schools in each assembly constituency, purchasing 10 litres of milk every day from cow and buffalo farmers, and Rs 2 per kg for cow dung.
Baghel said that all the leaders discussed that the government would buy 10 litres of milk from cows and buffaloes. This will enable the cattle breeder to get a fair price for the milk. He said that the government would also buy cow dung from cattle owners at a rate like Chhattisgarh.
During this, party observers for Himachal elections, Sachin Pilot and Pratap Singh Bajwa, state in-charge Rajiv Shukla, co-in-charge Sanjay Dutt, Congress state President Pratibha Singh, senior Himachal Congress leaders, Congress leader Alka Lamba were present.
