Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Friday promised a slew of measures to address the plight of underprivileged sections of the society in its manifesto. Highlights of its policies for the underprivileged:
– BJP is deeply committed to creating a society of equal opportunities with “justice for all” as its credo. Its state governments have introduced a series of schemes for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs) and minorities - especially in education, job training, poverty alleviation and promotion of entrepreneurial talent. These schemes will be improved upon and the most successful among them replicated nationally. In addition, schemes for people living in backward regions, particularly in the northeast, inaccessible forests and hilly areas will be prioritised.

– Education and job quotas will be introduced for economically backward sections of society other than SCs, STs and Other Backward Castes (OBCs), for whom reservations will continue.
