Panaji: Congress' manifesto for the March 3 Goa Assembly polls is likely to address land issues and promised creation of an agency that would train school drop- outs in security and disaster management skills.

Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee is likely to visit Goa to release the manifesto tomorrow, party sources said.

The manifesto is understood to have addressed the worries about the real estate boom, and conversion of agricultural land for other purposes. It promises that sale of agricultural land would be permitted only if buyer is a farmer, possibly a local, they said.

The manifesto might also assure of creation of Quality Audit and Control Authority to keep a tab on the government projects. "All the public assets would be audited by this committee," a senior member of the draft committee said.

The manifesto also promises creation an agency that would enroll school drop-outs and train them in security and disaster management skills, the sources said.

It also recommends full financing of Goa university by the state. The current cyber age scheme, under which computers are given to students, would be replaced by "smart school" scheme, they said.
