The BJP has promised to include Mizoram’s official language, Mizo in the eight schedule of the Indian Constitution if voted to power in the hill state.
The saffron party has made this promise in its manifesto for the Assembly polls in the state, which was released on Tuesday.
The party further promised rice at Rs 1 per kg, home to every homeless family and traffic-congestion-free Aizawl in three years and pothole-free all-weather roads in the next six months.
BJP general secretary Ram Madhav released the manifesto in Aizawl.
BJP president Amit Shah was scheduled to release it, but could not do so as he was behind schedule in his tour to the southern and northern tip of the state.
The party promised to establish two medical colleges, three engineering colleges and nursing training institutes, besides creating 50,000 jobs in the next five years.
Construction of trans-boundary highway, linking Myanmar and Bangladesh border via Aizawl, to promote trade, tourism and industries was among the poll promises of the party.
Other promises include establishment of multi-speciality hospitals in every district as part of the Ayushman Bharat scheme, football stadiums in every district, setting up of eco-parks and picnic spots to promote tourism.
The state will go to the polls on November 28.
