Environment Not An Important Agenda In Uttar Pradesh Elections
The state election in Uttar Pradesh was conducted on February 10, 2022. Various agendas to enhance farmer and women’s welfare have been included in the manifestos of the BJP, the Samajwadi Party, and the Congress party.
However, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has opted not to produce a manifesto, claiming that their deeds speak louder than words and that they do not need to flaunt and make false promises like their opponents.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Samajwadi Party have offered farmers free electricity. Congress took out three manifestoes Bharti Vidhan for youth, Shakti Vidhan for women, and Unnati Vidhan for the general population of Uttar Pradesh.
However, most parties in Uttar Pradesh have not included climate change in their manifestos, despite the fact that it is critical to consider climate change in a state like UP, which is our country’s most populous state.
Aam Adami Party has said, “The urgent issue is to offer some type of financial consolation to the COVID-hit jobless people of Uttar Pradesh,”.
So, among promises of goodies and cash, the party’s manifesto’s penultimate page mentions environmental and pollution control concerns in general, but not climate change.
Spokesperson Vaibhav Maheshwari from AAP said “we are focusing on matters that are of direct importance to the people and the problem of climate change and pollution is absent in our manifesto but, if elected, we would work to improve the environment by drafting, modifying, and implementing necessary legislation”
Climate change is also not addressed in the Samajwadi Party’s election manifesto. None of the document’s 22 resolutions addresses climate change directly. It also combines environmental protection and urban development in a broader sense.
