The mainfesto promises time-bound completion of mega projects taken up during the current UDF regime

The Congress-led UDF’s manifesto promises a liquor-free Kerala in the next 10 years. Released Wednesday, the manifesto also promises houses for all, food for all and health for all. The UDF is banking heavily on the financial assistance it has announced for various categories of the people.

The mainfesto promises time-bound completion of mega projects taken up during the current UDF regime, such as Vizhinjam port, Kochi Metro, and light Metros in Kozhikode and Thiruvananathapruam.

It says organic farming will be promoted with incentives to the farmers. BPL families will be given 25 kg rice free, and 20 consumer goods without any price increase for the next five years; for non-resident Keralites, it promises assistance to launch business ventures and old-age homes.

The manifesto lists several enhanced welfare measures for underprivileged sections. It promises to reduce unemployment to 4 per cent.
