JAIPUR: BJP and Congress lead­ers con­tin­ued their brain­storm­ing in Delhi on Satur­day over can­di­date se­lec­tion for the December 7 Ra­jasthan assem­bly polls. The state lead­er­ship of both the par­ties was in Delhi to meet the high com­mands. The Congress screen­ing com­mit­tee headed by Selja Ku­mari has been meet­ing for­mally and in­for­mally for the last few weeks in Delhi to dis­cuss can­di­dates for the 200 assem­bly seats. BJP lead­ers from Ra­jasthan Va­sund­hara Raje, state pres­i­dent Madan­lal Saini and oth­ers held talks with Ra­jasthan poll in-charge Prakash Javadekar at his home. The talks re­volved around iron­ing out dif­fer­ences over ax­ing of sit­ting MLAS and min­is­ters and try and ar­rive at a con­sen­sus on sin­gle names. HY­DER­ABAD: The Bharatiya Janata Party, in its man­i­festo for the December 7 assem­bly elec­tions in Te­lan­gana, has pro­posed free dis­tri­bu­tion of one lakh cows every year. The pro­posal is to dis­trib­ute cows in vil­lages, at the time of fes­ti­vals and oth­ers, to peo­ple who seek them, the BJP’S man­i­festo com­mit­tee chair­man NVSS Prab­hakar said here Satur­day.

List­ing the use of cows in sec­tors such as agri­cul­ture and ru­ral econ­omy, Prab­hakar, MLA in the re­cently-dis­solved House, said an­other pro­posal is to set up a‘mini-in­dia lin­guis­tic wel­fare board’ — to take care of the wel­fare of lin­guis­tic mi­nori­ties.

The man­i­festo is likely to be re­leased for­mally early next week. The panel ear­lier pro­posed reg­u­lat­ing sale of liquor, claim­ing that its un­re­stricted avail­abil­ity and con­sump­tion was lead­ing to sev­eral so­cial and law and or­der is­sues.
