In a first, Assam’s children prepare election manifesto; appeal to political parties 

Assam is the first such state in India where children have prepared the election agenda.Through this, they are demanding from the political parties that they should also include children’s issues in their manifestos.Issues like education, health and cleanliness, special arrangement of sanitary pads for girls in schools, have been given prominence in the children’s manifesto.

The population of children in Assam is about 1.5 crore.21 non-government organisations have collectively brought together the state’s children for election manifesto programme.However, the children were neither given any directions for deciding the issues nor any changes have been made in their agenda.

The children are meeting the leaders of BJP, Congress and other political parties to get their demands fulfilled.Parties too are talking about  including the children’s issues in their manifestos.

Normally the children’s issues don’t get prominence in the manifestos of political parties.May be it’s because they are not voters at present but it should also be kept in mind that today’s children are tomorrow’s voters.
