The NCP Maharashtra assembly poll manifesto, which was released here by the party's state unit chief Sunil Tatkare, has promised free laptops to students from the 'non-creamy layer', after they clear HSC exams.

The NCP has promised a separate ministry for other backward class (OBCs) if it is voted to power in Maharashtra. It has promised that the budget of the Maulana Azad Minority Economic Development Corporation for minorities would be raised to Rs 2,000 crore.
