Shiv Sena earlier released its manifesto for the assembly elections in Maharashtra which are scheduled on October 21. In its manifesto, Shiv Sena has promised to provide an annual financial aid worth ₹10,000 to poor farmers in the state. 

Moreover, Sena’s manifesto focuses on providing a one-time meal to the needy and poor in just ₹10. Along with this, Sena plans to provide complete loan waivers to the farmers followed by health check-up facility for just ₹1. 

While releasing the manifesto - ‘Vachannaama’ - at Matoshree, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said that the party has mentioned promises which it can ‘fulfil’ and the same has been mentioned in the manifesto after due research. 

On this occasion, along with Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray and party’s spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi was also present. 

Despite their opposition to tree cutting in Aarey and their demand to construct Ram Mandir, both the issues were not mentioned in Sena’s manifesto. 

However, Aditya Thackeray informed that Aarey issue has been mentioned in the Mumbai manifesto. “Since it is the assembly election, the Aarey was included in the state-level manifesto,” said Aditya Thackeray.
