Ahmedabad, Dec 3: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today released BJP’s manifesto for the state Assembly elections, saying that it iwas a blueprint for development of all sections of the society.

The party’s manifesto promises to address the problems of urban and rural housing, water, irrigation apart from resolving farmers’ issues.

In it, Modi has promised to define a new category of “neo-middle class,” those who have grown above the poverty line but still do not come in the category of middle class. 

Modi said his government will form various schemes to benefit this class who need a helping hand. 

“Due to development in Gujarat in the last ten years, there has been substantial rise in this neo-middle class. We want to address their issues,” Modi said. 

Seemingly to counter the Congress’ poll promises of providing clothes and houses at an affordable rate to rural and urban poor respectively, the BJP manifesto promises to construct 50 lakh new houses in the next five years. 

Congress’ promised scheme of low-cost housing had gained huge response from the people and thousands had queued up in urban and rural areas to get the forms distributed by the party.
