LIVE | We Are Moving Forward With Mantra 'One Mission, One Direction': Modi At BJP Manifesto Launch

The mention of the Ram Mandir in the BJP manifesto is no surprise, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said Monday, alleging that the saffron party has been using it for the last 30 years in a bid to "sharpen communal polarisation."

"Is this a surprise? For the last 30 years, every single 'jumla ghoshna' of theirs has included construction of the Ram Mandir... This point was continuously being repeated. Every election they did it. Their whole agenda is that of sharpening communal polarisation and hoping that it would garner them some votes. But they are sorely mistaken," Yechury reacted on the BJP manifesto.

The Congress on Monday slammed BJP for its manifesto and said that the ruling party has "simply copy-pasted" its 2014 poll document and changed all previous deadlines.

Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said the BJP should have come out with a 'maafinama' (letter of apology) instead of a manifesto.


At BJP Manifesto launch, Narendra Modi said his govt will set up Jal Shakti Mantralaya which will look into maximum optimization of water resources.

The foundation for 2047, the time when India completes 100 yrs of independence, has to be laid between 2019-2024, PM Modi said.

The essence of the manifesto is to deplete poverty over the next 5 yrs to single digit and then eventually eliminate it, he said.

We will also provide short-term new agriculture loans up to Rs. 1 lakh at a 0% interest rate for 1-5 years on the condition of prompt repayment of the principal amount he said.
We reiterate our stand on Ram Mandir. We will explore all possibilities within the framework of the Constitution to facilitate expeditious construction of Ram Mandir, said Rajnath Singh during BJP manifesto launch.
