The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday released its manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The party has listed out 75 resolutions that it has promised to fulfil by 2022. Some of the promises like the abrogation of Article 370 and 35 A have upset the NC and PDP. Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah slammed the BJP saying the move further alienate Jammu and Kashmir from India.
The Congress dubbed the BJP manifesto as jumla document that no one would believe. Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said that the saffron party simply copy pasted its last manifesto and changed all previous deadlines from 2019 to 2022, 2032, 2047, 2097.
“Luckily they didn’t shift any deadlines to the next century. The difference between BJP manifesto and Congress manifesto can be seen firstly from the cover page. Ours has a crowd of people, and BJP manifesto has the face of just one man. Instead of a manifesto, BJP should have come out with a ‘maafinama’,” he said in a tweet. However, defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman hit out at the Congress saying it should read the manifesto first then talk.
