Activist of IAC, UP, Akhilesh Saxena said that they have introduced this manifesto after assessing the manifestos of political parties. We have raised the demands of the people in it, which should be accepted by every political parties contesting in upcoming assembly elections.

"We will take this to public and will carry out a signature campaign on it by the people in a number of districts of the state. We will ask people that if candidates comes to ask vote from them then they should ask them to promise fulfilment of these demands," he added.

Hitting on the unemployment rate of youths in the state, IAC also demanded job opportunities and 'Unemployment Allowance' for the unemployed.

"Youths in large number are still unemployed in the state which shows the failure of the state government. If they cannot arrange jobs for them what are they doing for the people of the state. They should also give 'Unemployment Allowance' to them as per their qualifications ranging between Rs 5000 to Rs 20,000," said Akhilesh.

He said there are several amenities which people use in their daily life or need, including food, cloth, education, medicines, electricity and agriculture but due to increased inflation they are not able get them properly. "We have mentioned in it that taxes from these items should be waived off so that common people could get them easily," he added.

IAC also demanded speedy trials in judiciary, wherein every case should be disposed off within a period of one year.

"We will be organising a massive conference by the end of March for building pressure on the state government for the implementation ofthese demands. We will also send this manifesto, after it is signed by the people, to political parties and their candidates and to some of the higher authorities too," said another IAC activist, Himanshu Bharat.
