The other promises reportedly included 3 free LPG cylinders every year to the poor and financial aid for pregnant women and farmers.

To woo retired servicemen, the BJP promised to build a grand military memorial and museum, and also provide Rs 50,000 and job kit for retiring soldiers, as per reports.

To gain the confidence of women voters, the party reportedly said that it would give Rs 500 per month to women heads of poor families, and set aside Rs 500 crore for women self-help groups (SHGs).

Replicating a vow made in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, the party said that it would make the law against 'love jihad' stricter, with a penalty of 10-year rigorous imprisonment being added.

BJP also promised to provide 50,000 government jobs to youth, and Rs 10,000 per annum to farmers. Another vow included more infrastructure for police to deal with violent situations like riots, as per reports.

The hill state will vote on February 14. Results will be announced on March 10.
