Khairagarh/Bilaspur: Leaving no stone unturned to woo Chhattisgarh’s electorate, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra announced on Monday that her party’s dispensation would provide women a subsidy of Rs 500 each on cooking gas cylinders under the Mahtari Nyay Yojana, power bills would be waived for 42 lakh consumers utilising less than 200 units and debt set aside in the context of all women self-help groups.

Addressing poll rallies in Khairagarh and Bilaspur, the visiting leader said that electricity charges would be universally applicable only on consumption over 200 units.

“Accident victims shall be provided free-of-cost medical treatment. For those in the transport business, a sum of Rs 726 crore including interest will be written off vis-à-vis vehicle tax. As many as 700 industrial parks shall be established; 6,000 government schools upgraded and tivara purchased at minimum support price,” she added.

"Tivara will be purchased from the farmers at the support price," she added.

In her address, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra criticised the BJP and urged the people to vote for the party that focuses on development and welfare rather than misleading people in the name of religion.
