NCP today said that BJP's manifesto showed a lack of vision and was "old wine in a new bottle".

The saffron party today pledged to end policy paralysis, corruption and "tax terrorism" while reiterating its core agenda of Ram Temple construction, Uniform Civil Code and abrogation of Article 370.

Speaking to reporters here, NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said the manifesto showed BJP's lack of vision in economic, social, educational, political fields.

"It's nothing but old wine in a new bottle," he said adding that it was based on RSS's "divisive agenda".

"Why was uniform civil code not brought when BJP was in power earlier," he asked.

On the saffron party's promise to explore all possibilities within framework of Constitution to facilitate construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Malik asked, "Will BJP then apologise for its (past) illegal acts"
