Chaibasa (Jharkhand): Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said his party will safeguard the forests, land and water of the tribals, if voted to power.

The standard of living of the poor would also be improved through the 'NYAY' scheme, he said at an election rally here in support of Congress and 'Mahagathbandhan' candidate Gita Koda from the Singhbhum (ST) Lok Sabha constituency.

"We will protect the jal, jungle, zameen (water, forest and land) of tribals," Gandhi said.

Asserting that the 'NYAY' scheme would act as a "surgical strike" in eradicating poverty from the country, Gandhi said, "A sum of Rs 72,000 per annum will be deposited in the bank accounts of the tribals, the poor, farmers, small traders."

The Congress chief also said 22 lakh government posts are lying vacant, which would would be filled up if the party came to power.

Gita Koda, the wife of former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda, is fighting against BJP MP and its state unit president Laxman Gilua from the Singhbhum seat.
