Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday will address election rallies in Manipur’s Imphal and Uttar Pradesh’s Bahraich. Last week Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had released its election manifesto for the 2022 Manipur assembly polls and promised host of ‘freebies’ while focusing on the protection of territorial integrity and preserving the rights of the indigenous people of Manipur and its rich culture.
Among the BJP’s top promises are two free LPG cylinders to be provided annually to all the PM Ujjwala beneficiaries of the state. Free scooty would be provided to all meritorious college-going girls of the state. Girls from EWS and backward sections will be provided with an incentive of 25,000 under the Rani Gaidinliu Nupi Maheiroi Singi Scheme. Manipur will go to the polls in two phases on February 28 and March 5.
Amid the ongoing Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh, BJP has intensified its campaigning for the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh phases of the election. Home Minister Amit Shah will also hold roadshows today in the Raniganj, in Koraon, and in the western, northern, and southern parts of Prayagraj. Along with this, Home Minister may also campaign in Prayagraj (Gangapar). National President JP Nadda will be campaigning in Prayagraj’s western, North and South parts of the metropolis today.
