Thiruvananthapuram: BJP in Kerala on Tuesday promised voters it would bring in a special legislation to tackle terrorism and organised crimes if voted to power in the April 13 assembly polls.

The party's election manifesto, released by BJP central spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy here, announced a slew of welfare schemes covering various sections and projected the line of development pursued by the Narendra Modi Government in Gujarat as a role model.

Central parity in pay for state employees, 10 per cent reservation for the poor among the forward classes, a bill to restore alienated land to tribals and formation of a body for welfare of non-resident Keralites were some of the highlights of the manifesto.

The party would give priority to develop a rail link to the famed Sabarimala temple, visited by millions of devotees from all parts of the country and abroad.
