Kolkata, March 21 (TIWN) Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday released the BJP's manifesto for the upcoming West Bengal Assembly elections.

"The core idea of this manifesto is building a Sonar Bangla. For centuries, Bengal led the country on several fronts - spiritually, science, politics, social reforms, education or art. Bengal used to be ahead in every sector," Shah said.

The home minister said that the BJP has decided to call their manifesto a 'Sankalp Patra' "because it is not just a manifesto but a resolution letter for West Bengal by the country's largest party".

Shah further said that the BJP's manifesto emphasises on women's safety, development of infastructure, providing better healthcare services and setting up industries in the state. "We have decided to provide free education to women from KG to PG," he added.

Lambasting the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government, Shah said, "At one time, 30% of India's industrial production came from Bengal. Today, it has fallen to 3.5%. 73 years of ill-governance is the reason of this."
