Caste census by 2025, old pension scheme, MSP law…: Samajwadi Party’s manifesto

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has released the party’s manifesto on Wednesday, pledging to make a caste-based census by 2025.

The 20-page document titled ‘Hamara Adhikar’ also vowed to terminate the Agnipath scheme and implement regular recruitment in the armed forces.

By 2025, all the government vacancies for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Backward Classes would be filled, the manifesto promised.

“We have named our vision document as ‘Janta Ka Maang Patra – Humara Adhikar’. The main demands in this vision document are – the right to protect the constitution, the right to protect democracy, the right to freedom of media, and the right to social justice… the right to social justice is needed for the development of the country. Inclusive development isn’t possible without the caste census. Caste census is the axis of development of the country,” Yadav said.

The party would ensure Minimum Support Price (MSP) on all crops under the Swaminathan formula, Yadav added.

Old Pension Scheme (OPS) will be launched for everyone including paramilitary personnel, the SP supremo said.
