Telangana elections 2018: Glimpses into the BJP manifesto have been provided today in Hyderabad. However, the manifesto is likely to be released formally early next week. The Bharatiya Janata Pary's manifesto committee chairman NVSS Prabhakar did the honours here on Saturday by revealing some aspects that have been proposed by the BJP manifesto committee. Telangana assembly elections will be held on December 7, 2018. BJP manifesto has proposed free distribution of one lakh cows every year. The fresh proposals are an addition to the ideas mooted earlier, Prabhakar said Saturday. Check out the Telangana BJP manifesto highlights:



BJP manifesto may propose to distribute cows in villages, at the time of festivals and others, to people who seek them. It listed various uses of cows in sectors such as agriculture and rural economy.


The BJP manifesto also promises cancellation of surcharge fares by state-run Road Transort Corporation (RTC) buses during fesival seasons and free transportation to those taking up 'Deeksha' (religious code of behaviour) for visiting temples, including Sabarimala.


Another BJP manifesto proposal is to set up a 'mini-India linguistic welfare board'. The board would take care of the welfare of linguistic minorities, those coming to Hyderabad from other states in search of livelihood.


The BJP manifesto committee earlier proposed regulating sale of liquor, claiming that its unrestricted availability and consumption was leading to several social and law and order problems.


Another proposal is for total waiver of the tax on petrol and diesel, free online and offline coaching to youth appearing for competitive examinations and provision of safe drinking water for Rs six per month per household.
