India's ruling party releases manifesto days before election

India's ruling party releases manifesto days before election

In the last four years, especially after the Maharashtra Assembly elections of October 2014 before which the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance split, the Sena and Thackeray have severely criticised the Modi government and made personal remarks against the Prime Minister.

"I never thought I would see what is happening in India right now", said the former global cricket star.

Modi and Shah addressed two rallies each in Uttarakhand after the announcement of poll dates while state leaders of the two parties held over two dozen rallies in different constituencies.

Pollsters say Modi and the BJP's re-election bid got a boost from a wave of patriotism after the suicide bomb attack and the Indian government's fast response.

He charged BSP president Mayawati with playing with the sentiments of the dalits for the sake of Muslim votes, He took a dig at the Congress, saying the party's manifesto gave the impression of "Congress ka haath, deshdrohiyon key saath" (Congress is backing traitors).

"The language that Congress speaks is the same language that Pakistan also speaks. Had pre-Independence Congress leaders acted wisely, "this Pakistan" would not have been created".

Slamming Congress-NCP alliance for backing separate PM for Jammu and Kashmir, Modi said, "The country has no expectations with Congress party but Sharad sahab you!"

The head of the UN-backed unity government, Fayez al-Sarraj, visited the checkpoint on Friday accompanied by military commanders. The sides have been in an uneasy truce since shortly after Gaddafi's downfall but the country now risks falling into civil war.

Taking a dig at Pakistan, Modi said first they came in media and said they had two pilots in their captivity but by evening they said they only had one pilot.

The national elections will see close to 900 million voters cast their ballots in almost a million polling booths - the world's biggest ever democratic exercise.

"Can your first vote be dedicated to those who carried out air strike?" he said.

Earlier in the day, the BJP 's 43-page manifesto has introduced a number of perks for women in its Lok Sabha election manifesto which was released today by PM Narendra Modi, along with the BJP's top leadership including Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley.

He said that the Modi government had sanctioned Rs16,500 crore for various schemes in the state during the last five years.

He also said his objective is to rid India of naxal and Maoist menace.
