Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday called the BJP’s manifesto “Sankalp Patra” ‘short sighted and arrogant’.
“The Congress manifesto was created through discussion. The voice of over a million Indian people it is wise and powerful. The BJP Manifesto was created in a closed room. The voice of an isolated man, it is short sighted and arrogant,” Gandhi tweeted.
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released its manifesto for the high-stakes general election starting April 11 on Monday, promising to implement the NRC in different parts of the country to push out infiltrators and zero tolerance to terror while reiterating its pet causes — construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and scrapping of Articles 370 and 35A, dealing with Jammu and Kashmir’s special status. BJP’s ‘Sankalp Patra’ was released around a week after Congress unveiled their manifesto with NYAY plan.
The Congress had dubbed the BJP’s election manifesto a “Jhansa Patra” (deception document) and a “bubble of lies”.
Soon after the release of BJP manifesto, Congress leader Ahmed Patel said, “The BJP manifesto is a bunch of lies and it would have been better if they would have issued an apology letter instead.”
